I point you out, Mark, because I've read you're a criminal attorney.
I have a question concerning the use of a non-profit 501 (c)(3).
The West Sound Disc Golf Association carries a 501 (c)(3). Our club, the Mason County Disc Golf Club, would like to cooperate with WSDGA somehow to use their non-profit status so that we can give individuals and businesses the ability to "tax-write-off" their donation (for baskets, concrete, locks etc.) The WSDGA view is that this is one of the reasons they went to great lengths to get it's federally recognized non-profit status. The WSDGA is not looking to be compensated, but they are concerned that they may be doing something illegally.
So, my question. Can the WSDGA accept money from/through the MCDGC, and offer a "tax-write-off" receipt for donations to/through MCDGC? Or is this somehow money laundering? What can we do to legally see this through?
