Becky's Blurbs: Differences of IRS Categories for Nonprofits

Today, I signed up for a free account to Guidestar.org. It lists non-profits, including associations and universities, based on IRS 990 forms and annual reports. It used to provide more free information, but now, it is charging for that data.

One piece of helpful information that you don't have to pay on Guidestar for is a quick listing of the differences between types of tax-exempt non-profits. Click the link below for that information.

Internal Revenue Service Subsection Codes for Tax-Exempt Organizations

Do sign up for an account though. It's free and easy to use.

If you wish to search for potential grants, I recommend IRIS (Illinois Researcher Information Service) which is published by the University Library. It's free to us and steadily, is getting easier to use. When the interface changes, bellog will post an announcement.
