501c3 Compliance

The IWLA National Bylaws (Section 5.9) and IRS regulations require submission of certain information annually. As a result, we request that all chapters and state divisions submit the following information no later than August 16, 2019:

  • A current copy of your Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation.
  • A copy of your most recent IRS 990, 990-EZ or 990-N postcard.
  • Copies of any corporate filings made with your state within the last 12 months (e.g., updated reports for corporate registration, current certification to solicit funds).
  • Certificate of insurance listing your state division (if applicable) and the national organization as additional insureds.
  • A completed copy of the chapter/division questionnaire describing conservation and education charitable activities conducted in the previous calendar year.

To help you complete your chapter/division questionnaire, we have provided samples with short descriptions of activities that chapters and divisions have submitted in previous years as well as a letter with more information and tips regarding the process.
