    We've been working on this for more than six weeks. Some of the questions raised above have been explored as follows:

    1. We're aware of the Idaho group. After some initial poking around, it looks unrelated to this FSF, although there's a possibility that Gannon's FSF was intentionally named to take advantage of the confusion (hard to prove, I'd think, although if anyone has ideas, we'd love to hear them).

    2. 990's: No 990's need to be filed if there is less than $25,000 to be reported.

    3. The "Religious Nonprofit" status: I initially thought this meant it was a church or religious group as well, but intrepid researcher sawcielackey pointed me to this explanation from the state of Delaware:

    R - Religious Non-profit - This description type refers to a corporation that sets forth in it's certificate of incorporation or subsequent documents that it is a non-profit corporation. The "Religious" literal does not infer that, in every case, the corporation is for Religious purposes only. The intent is to define the corporation as Non-Profit, charitable corporation which maybe formed for Religious purposes.

    •  An 'or' or virgule would be nice (none)
      Religious or non-profit
      Religious/non-profit

      Means what the definition says rather than what the words say.

      It would keep some speculation from getting too far out of hand, though this doesn't absolve the administrators of lying about the 501(c)(3) status of the organization.
