Tax Status Changes  


In making a grant to you, the Foundation needs to determine whether you are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, whether you are a private foundation under Section 509(a) of the Code and whether you are a Type III supporting organization under Section 509(a)(3)(B)(iii) of the Code.


If, during the period of your grant, you are notified by the Internal Revenue Service that your status as a tax-exempt organization under any of these statutes has changed, you are required to notify the Foundation immediately. Send an email to
