A Contribution That Matters
A nonprofit organization is “A business that has tax-exemption status via the IRS because it furthers a social cause and provides a public benefit” according to investopedia.com. Donations given to nonprofits are normally tax-deductible to individuals or the businesses that made them. The nonprofit itself pays no taxes on the donations received or any other money raised through fundraiser activities.
Organizations are given the title of being called a nonprofit and claim tax exemption status. By the organization further advancing causes like religious causes, scientific, charitable, educational, literary, public safety, or cruelty prevention. A nonprofit must contribute to the public in some way whether it be through goods, services, or both. Nonprofits also are required to make financial and functional information for the organization public. So, that donors to the cause such as myself or you know where that money is going and how it’s being used.
What Does a Non-Profit Organization Do?
Nonprofits seek out donations in many ways. Whether it be fundraising through different events like bake sales, car washes, galas, and many other tools. On the flip side of the coin, there is a lot of work that goes into running these organizations. Nonprofits don’t run themselves. It takes a lot of hard work and effort from the heart. Heads or chairs of the organizations organize events, cash handle, manage rosters, create campaigns, handle mail, and the list goes on.
