What does it mean to be a 501(c)(3) organization?

501(c)(3) refers to a part of the U.S. tax code that provides exempt status for Federal Income Tax purposes for some non-profit organizations. Section "501" of the code deals with exemption from tax on corporations, certain trusts, etc. These organizations are usually charitable, educational, or religious.

Having 501(c)(3) status means that charities can accept contributions and donors may receive a tax deduction for their gifts. For donors, this means your contributions are fully tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law.
