If 501(c)(3) does not seem like a good fit for your organization, there are many other kinds of 501(c) tax exempt status to consider.  The most common are listed in this Table. 

Click through for more information on each of these alternatives:

           501(c)(4) Social Welfare Organizations

           501(c)(5) Agricultural Organizations

​           501(c)(5) Labor Organizations

           501(c)(6) Trade Associations

           501(c)(7) Social Clubs

Another option, often called Fiscal Sponsorship is based on an IRS ruling that permits a 501(c)(3) organization to distribute part of its funds to organizations which have not, themselves, received IRS recognition of (c)(3) status.
