    Our organization is a Car Club, a 501-C7 for taxing purposes. We have a car show once a year the profits of which go to the local Elks club for their Christmas basket program and to individuals and groups in the local community that are in need. ie, we gave a power scooter to a 9 yr old boy, donated to the sheriff's department K-9 program, donated to the high school acohol free grad night, and Kiwanis splash pool for the local children. No one in our organization receives a salary.

    Are we eligible for a non-profit account?

    Thanks,

    Mary-Ann

    To be honest, I am not sure since we are not the one who will decide for this. But since you said "No one in our organization receives a salary." there is a great possibility that your Non-Profit application will get approved.

    You can apply for a Non-Profit discount on this page https://www.jotform.com/nonprofit/pricing/ and we will email you if your application is approved.

    Thank you.

    FYI...


    Social clubs are exempt from federal income tax under IRC 501(a) as
    organizations described in IRC 501(c)(7) if they are "organized for pleasure,
    recreation, and other nonprofitable purposes." They were originally granted
    exemption from federal income tax in the Revenue Act of 1916. Generally, social
    clubs are membership organizations primarily supported by dues, fees, charges or
    other funds paid by their members.
