Q. Are 501(c)(3) organizations permitted to

donate funds to individuals or pay their expenses?

A. Yes, if doing so legitimately furthers a 501(c)(3) purpose.  Revenue Ruling 56-304 requires organizations to maintain case histories which show the 501(c)(3) basis for such distributions.  

(Note that rules for private foundations, not covered here, are different.)
