Eh, maybe the Salvation Army and Goodwill. Just maybe. Not saying I do, but not saying I don't. Maybe.

Lot of misunderstanding of "non-profit" in here.

Non-profit does not necessarily equal a charity. While charities are non-profits, not all non-profits are charities.

They can be any organization that uses surplus revenues to achieve its goals rather than distributing them as profit or dividends.

In the U.S. they are classified as 501(c) organizations. There are 29 subdivisions of that class:


501(c)(1) Corporations Organized Under Act of Congress (including Federal Credit Unions)
501(c)(2) Title Holding Corporation for Exempt Organization
501(c)(3) Religious, Educational, Charitable, Scientific, Literary, Testing for Public Safety, to Foster National or International Amateur Sports Competition, or Prevention of Cruelty to Children or Animals Organizations
501(c)(4) Civic Leagues, Social Welfare Organizations, and Local Associations of Employees
501(c)(5) Labor, Agricultural, and Horticultural Organizations
501(c)(6) Business Leagues, Chambers of Commerce, Real Estate Boards, etc.
501(c)(7) Social and Recreational Clubs
501(c)(8) Fraternal Beneficiary Societies and Associations
501(c)(9) Voluntary Employee Beneficiary Associations
501(c)(10) Domestic Fraternal Societies and Associations
501(c)(11) Teachers' Retirement Fund Associations
501(c)(12) Benevolent Life Insurance Associations, Mutual Ditch or Irrigation Companies, Mutual or Cooperative Telephone Companies, etc.
501(c)(13) Cemetery Companies
501(c)(14) State-Chartered Credit Unions, Mutual Reserve Funds
501(c)(15) Mutual Insurance Companies or Associations
501(c)(16) Cooperative Organizations to Finance Crop Operations
501(c)(17) Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Trusts
501(c)(18) Employee Funded Pension Trust (created before June 25, 1959)
501(c)(19) Post or Organization of Past or Present Members of the Armed Forces
501(c)(21) Black lung Benefit Trusts
501(c)(22) Withdrawal Liability Payment Fund
501(c)(23) Veterans Organization (created before 1880)
501(c)(25) Title Holding Corporations or Trusts with Multiple Parents
501(c)(26) State-Sponsored Organization Providing Health Coverage for High-Risk Individuals
501(c)(27) State-Sponsored Workers' Compensation Reinsurance Organization
501(c)(28) National Railroad Retirement Investment Trust
501(c)(29) Qualified Nonprofit Health Insurance Issuers (Created in section 1322(h)(1) of the Affordable Care Act)

ASPCA and the Red Cross. I've done the Susan G Komen walks before but that's about it.

Not necessarily true. More money -> more research -> larger possibility to find a better cure.

Also not necessarily true. Enough money =/= enough food to feed everyone.

This is what I was going to post. What most people think of when they say "non-profit" falls under the category of 501(c)(3).

That said, there are plenty of worthwhile charitable non-profits worth supporting.

I always thought "Black Lung Benefit Trusts" was hilariously specific to have it's own tax classification, but I don't live in a part of the country where coal mining is prevalent.

Wasn't the American Army budget enough to deal with this? There's lots of ground in Africa etc. that can be harvested >.>

More money -> research = larger probability to find cure. PROBABILITY. There's enough good ground on the earth to feed people. It's the money that's missing to harvest it in a decent way.
