Meaning of 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(2)
Section 501(c)(3) is the section of the Tax Code that describes religious, scientific, literary, educational and other charitable organizations exempt from federal income tax. All charities are further subdivided, however, between public charities, which receive broad public support from gifts or fees, and private foundations, which receive almost all of their income (other than investment income) from a very narrow group of persons, such as a single individual, family or corporation. The Code provides more restrictions on the activities of private foundations than on public charities.
509(a)(2) covers organizations that receive their support from a combination of gifts, grants and contributions and fees for their exempt services. Precious Petals depends on donations from everyday people like you who have great compassion for victims of violence.
