In our commitment to transparency and in keeping with IRS best practices for a charitable organization, we are making all tax returns filed to date available to the public.
NDF is registered as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public charity or nonprofit organization (NPO). As such, it is owned by no one and everyone. NPOs are similar to regular, for-profit corporations, except that instead of sharing dividends with shareholders, all proceeds go towards serving the NPO’s mission and constituents. In exchange for serving a social need, the organization is given a tax-free status that it can pass on to its donors. The regulations to enforce a nonprofit are stronger and more strictly enforced than a for-profit entity.
