Qualified Charity

Qualified Charity

A non-profit organization in the United States devoted exclusively to religious, charitable, scientific, educational, or other similar purposes. Qualified charities are not allowed to lobby for political candidates. Qualified charities are exempt from federal taxation and, in most cases, contributions and donations made to them are also tax exempt. For this reason, many philanthropic foundations do not provide grants to organizations that are not qualified charities.
