Public Charities & Private Foundations Under 501(c)(3)

While private foundations and public charities share the same exemption designation of 501(c)(3), there are many distinct differences in their legal, operational, regulatory and tax reporting requirements – making their governance and management challenging for their executives and boards.

Knowledgeable leaders can only maximize the impact of their nonprofit organization in advancing their charitable purposes when they are aware of and carefully manage various issues and obstacles that can expose the organization and its leaders to liability and IRS penalties.
