Good Question

I recently came across this good question and thought it might be helpful to share with our readers.

Q: If someone asks for a copy of our organizations Form 990, do we need to disclose our contributors?

A: The rules differ for public charities and private foundations. Public charities are not obligated to reveal information about contributors. The law permits public charities to omit the names and addresses of contributors in Schedule B, as well as any identifying information. Private Foundations, however, are required to reveal information about contributors. They can not omit contributor names and addresses.
