Bloomberg Government's Kevin Brancato

Heard at Washington Days Conference

"Usually when you go to the big organization events there's just tons of people and you don't get an opportunity to share.  You find your speakers are on a schedule with maybe a half hour to talk.  There's little time for questions and answers.  When I went to those kinds of venues I really left without getting my questions answered or didn't get to talk to the people I wanted.  At Federal Allies I get to talk one-on-one for long periods of time and that's just fantastic."

Former SBA senior staffer Stan Fujii and Unisys Federal System's Margery B. Jones

You Should Know...

All nonprofits are to file a Form 990 with the IRS each year.

Federal Allies Institute files an IRS Form 990 each year.  Our first filing was for 2009.

Once reviewed by the IRS each Form 990 is then scanned and made into a pdf file and made available for your review, at no cost, at www.GuideStar.org.

It usually takes several months before the most recent Form 990 makes its way onto GuideStar, but if a nonprofit is over two years old, it should have at least one posted, and one posted for each following year.

You can review the Form 990 of any nonprofit that you wish. Form 990s detail all association revenue and expenses including  top employees salaries.

At first glance, many organizations with association sounding names are assumed by an unsuspecting public to be IRS reviewed nonprofits, but in fact actually are not. 

The ones that are not, do not file a Form 990. 

As a matter of public record and your due dilligence, you should feel at ease to request IRS Certification of nonprofit status from any nonprofit with which you interact.  This is a one-page document.  This document is published by the IRS and sent to each nonprofit for their safekeeping in order to show the public.   This type of public request is anticipated by professionally operated nonprofits.
