Note: Only charitable organizations qualified as exempt under paragraph (3) of subsection (c) of Section 501 of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1954 qualify to receive designations. Status is verified prior to payments. If an agency does not qualify, the donor will be notified. Approved expenses are deducted before designations are distributed. America's Best Charities will process all contributions made to 501(c)(3) organizations that are not under a Federation.
