  •  I can personally confirm this. (0+ / 0-)

    I serve on the Board of Directors of a local LGBT nonprofit organization. A few years ago, we went through the process of applying for 501c3 status. It was a process that took about 10 months.

    We were asked the very same questions that the Tea Party groups are up in arms about. The IRS wanted to see donor lists as well. We were a very small organization at the time with few donors so that wasn't an issue. The IRS originally attempted to classify us as a 501c4 but after much protest we were able to get certified as a 501c3.
