Foundations Status of Certain Organizations


Table of Contents

The following organizations have failed to establish or have been unable to maintain their status as public charities or as operating foundations. Accordingly, grantors and contributors may not, after this date, rely on previous rulings or designations in the Cumulative List of Organizations (Publication 78), or on the presumption arising from the filing of notices under section 508(b) of the Code. This listing does not indicate that the organizations have lost their status as organizations described in section 501(c)(3), eligible to receive deductible contributions.

Former Public Charities. The following organizations (which have been treated as organizations that are not private foundations described in section 509(a) of the Code) are now classified as private foundations:

Org. Name City State
Accion Latina, Inc., Alexandria VA
Amazing Grace Help, Inc., Columbus MS
Endorse Peace Foundation, Beverly Hills CA
Friends of Creative Kids, Inc., Houston TX
Incredible Dreams Childcare and Learning Center, Inc., Munster IN
Lotus Fund, Santa Monica CA
Myanmar Youth Association, Inc., North Bergen NJ
Northeast Regional Forest Foundation, Brattleboro VT
Rib Lake Community Development Foundation, Inc., Rib Lake WI
Total Community Development Corporation, Montgomery AL
Urban Hope International, Inc., Stockton CA
Woodleaf Endowment Foundation, Inc., Yuba City CA

If an organization listed above submits information that warrants the renewal of its classification as a public charity or as a private operating foundation, the Internal Revenue Service will issue a ruling or determination letter with the revised classification as to foundation status. Grantors and contributors may thereafter rely upon such ruling or determination letter as provided in section 1.509(a)-7 of the Income Tax Regulations. It is not the practice of the Service to announce such revised classification of foundation status in the Internal Revenue Bulletin.
