Can 501(c)(6) organizations legally accept government funds or funds from academic institutions?

Dist. of Columbia |

If not, what options do we have in terms of creating subsidiary organizations that can accept such funds? What kinds of legal entities must those be (e.g., companies, foundations, etc.)?

  1. 501(c)(6) organizations are quite complex as you see from the IRS manual. To assess your situation would require a consultation.
