Human Rights, Equality, Inclusion
Common to all definitions of charity is the concept of broad public benefit. Treasury Regulations define charitable to include the promotion of social welfare by organizations designed to lessen neighborhood tensions, eliminate prejudice and discrimination, defend human and civil rights secured by law and combat community deterioration and juvenile delinquency. Organizations under the broad category of human rights may also be considered educational if they instruct the public on subjects useful to the individual and beneficial to the community.
Keep in mind, section 501(c)(3) organizations are expressly prohibited from engaging in political activities. Human rights and inclusion organizations can be emotionally charged and controversial; therefore, care must be taken to avoid direct or indirect participation in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for elective public office.
In order to be exempt as an organization described in section 501(c)(3), an organization must be both organized and operated exclusively for one or more of these exempt purposes: charitable, religious, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, educational, fostering national or international sports competition and / or the prevention of cruelty to animals or children.
Specific charitable purposes can include relief of the poor, distressed or underprivileged, erecting or maintaining public buildings or monuments, lessening the burdens of government, lessening neighborhood tensions, eliminating prejudice and discrimination, defending human and civil rights and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.
