The ACA is a non profit RI corporation with IRS tax exempt status. We are allowed to offer our tax exempt status to other non profit corporations who are members of the ACA. Why would you want this status? If you are a non profit who is applying for a grant and the GRANTOR requires your tax exempt ID then you need to have IRS tax exempt status. If you are a non profit who is running a fundraiser and want your donors to be have ability to deduct any contributions made to your non profit they need a tax ID number.
As a member of the ACA your non profit organization can request that ACA act as your Fiscal Agent and then use our TAX ID tax exempt number for your grant application or fundraiser. You can apply online or download the application.
If you are currently not a member of the ACA then make application for membership first.
Any and all grant funds or fundraising funds passed through the ACA is charged a 3% administrative fee.
If you are a group who is not yet applied as a non profit you can apply to the RI Division of Corporations to become a RI non profit corporation. Should you need assistance with this application you may qualify through the RI BAR association or the Arts and Business Council www.artsandbusinessri.org.
