Some advantages are:

  • Donor's contribution is tax-deductible
  • Reduced nonprofit mailing rate
  • Eligible for government/foundation grant application
  • Eligible for property & sales tax exemption application
  • 403(b) pension possible
  • FUTA & SUTA tax exemption
  • PSA announcement possible
  • Option to opt out from FICA & SECA tax, etc.

All member ministries in good standing who submit an annual report by January 31 of each year will be included in Unity Worldwide Ministries tax-exempt 501c3 umbrella filing.
