Determining an Organization’s Tax Status

Does Exponent Philanthropy have resources that provide guidance on verifying an organization’s tax status?

As a private foundation, it is important to know which category the potential grantee falls into; knowing a grantee is a 501(c)(3) is not enough. We have several resources on our website that can help you with due diligence.

Charity Check is a one-stop due diligence tool offered by GuideStar that provides up-to-date information on all nonprofits in a user-friendly format. Exponent Philanthropy members can subscribe at a discounted rate here.
