Default Tom Question

I posted this yesterday or the day before, but I don't think you've seen it, Tom.

If one wanted to start a provider support or interest group, how hard is it to get non-profit status? This would be for the purpose of applying for grants, specifically.

Sorry, I didn't see your post.
It would be extremely hard, since tax-exempt non-profit status is only awarded to groups formed for the public good, not for the good of the group. Your group can get a non-profit status as an organization fairly easily (contact your state secretary of state's office), but to be eligible for grants I think you must also be tax exempt. Check with the places where you might apply for grants to see whether or not your group needs to be tax exempt.

ok, thank you! Have a great weekend.

Will you be at WECA next month? I met you at a seminar once many years ago.
