What is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit?

A 501 (c)(3) is a type of organization or corporation classified as a charity that’s able to accept charitable contributions. Contributions given to a 501(c)(3) are tax deductible when given before the close of the tax year. A pledge or promise to pay does not count. All 501(c)(3) organizations must be approved by the IRS under a rigorous approval process. If an organization is certified 501(c)(3), as most well known charitable organizations are, it’s safe to give a donation knowing that it can be tax deductible.
