Proposal Documentation




The IRS determination letter specifies under which section of the Internal Revenue Code the organization is qualified, and is commonly requested from organizations for grant processing. Because the Charles Koch Foundation generally only supports Code Section 501(c)(3) public charities and organizations described in Code Section 509(a)(1), (2), or (3), you must submit IRS verification that your organization is exempt from federal income tax as a Code Section 501(c)(3) organization and is classified as a public charity under Code Section 509(a).

If a copy of the IRS determination letter cannot be obtained, please submit a tax status confirmation letter, like the example found here
