Proving Public Charity Status with Form 990 Schedule A

So you run a 501(c) tax-exempt organization, and you know that you still need to file a Form 990 or Form 990-EZ in order to detail to the IRS (and potential donors) where the organization’s money goes. But there’s one more thing to do: you must prove that your organization is a public charity.

IRS Form 990 Schedule A helps prove your organization’s 501(c) public charity status. There are a variety of metrics on this form, such as the public support test to measure what percentage of funds given come from the general public.

If your organization is classified as a 501(e), 501(f) 501(k), or 501(n) charity, you also must file a 990 Schedule A.
