Page 5 - Part VI - Questions 1a and 1b - Providing Goods/Services to Individuals/Organizations
It is important, when answering this question, to make it clear how providing goods, services or funds contributes to the accomplishment of your non-profit organization's exempt purpose. How are your operations, or the goods, etc. themselves, distinguishable from what is available commercially?
Page 5 - Part VI - Question 2 - Limitations
Charitable organizations may limit their services to individuals who are members of a "charitable class." This term includes persons who are aged, ill, handicapped, unemployed, or otherwise distressed, children and, of course, the poor, indigent, and underprivileged. A charity established to benefit a specific person cannot qualify for 501(c)(3) status, even if that person is in need. To have a true "charitable class," the specific individuals who will benefit cannot be known or selected ahead of time.
