Through sponsorships, the Institute enables organizations to receive tax-deductible contributions for educational work related to peace and justice. Sponsored projects generally do not have their own tax-exempt charitable status in the US. Some are not directly eligible for tax-exempt status because they carry out or advocate activities which do not meet Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules for charitable tax-deductions (i.e. tax resistance, draft resistance, civil disobedience, direct action). Others don't have the time, energy or financial ability to pursue tax-exempt status, or decide the status does not provide a significant advantage in their work.
The Muste Institute can only direct sponsored grants or contributions to activities which are legal and educational, which do not violate IRS rules and which are within our stated mission. For more information contact Heidi Boghosian at 212-533-4335 or [email protected]
