501(c)(3) Information

In April of 2002, because of CFC’s continued growth and its desire to become an independent organization, CFC incorporated itself as a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation and registered itself with the Office of the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Public Charity Division. CFC’s Attorney General’s Account Number is 041306. And in May of 2002, CFC began to operate as an independent charity. During the remainder of 2002, CFC transitioned itself away from the National Heritage Foundation.

In December of 2002, CFC received an advance ruling from the Internal Revenue Service qualifying CFC as a 501(c)(3) organization. CFC’s Tax Identification Number is 02-0586765. In 2007, CFC received a permanent ruling from the IRS that it qualified as a 501(c)(3) organization. Please note, however, that registration with either the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office or the Internal Revenue Service does not mean that either of these agencies has endorsed CFC and the work that it does; neither agency ever endorses a public charity.
