[cg] Fwd: Non profit status

>Date: Thu, 11 Mar 1999 12:29:43 -0700
>To: community_garden@ag.arizona.edu
>From: AVANOLE@aol.com (by way of Lucy Bradley <bradleyl@ag.arizona.edu>)
>Subject: Non profit status
>Our community garden project has applied for 501 (c) 3 using Form 1023.  It
>has come back with a question of consideration for federal exemption-- that if
>the gardeners keep their produce, then the organization is engaged in
>activities for private interests.  The IRS letter sees the produce as products
>or funds that are diverted from exempt purposes to private purposes, when
>families keep their own food.  Most of our gardeners are not low income. 
>The organization engages in education, youth programs,  improving nutrition,
>providing garden space, helping other groups start community gardens, and also
>give produce weekly to the food pantry (250lbs) during the harvesting months.
>BUT, yes, we want to eat and share with our neighbors what we grow, too.   
>Does anyone have a thought about how community gardens are considered non-
>profit and is food really funds, profits or products?
