EDS Wellness is officially an approved 501(c)(3) organization, with an effective date for exemptions of Feb. 24, 2016 — the day that EDS Wellness was incorporated as a non-profit in the state of Maryland! 

EDS Wellness is a public charity under section 509(a)(b), which is granted when public support will come from a combo of donations, grants, contributions and fees for tax exempt services offered.

The 501(c)(3) application was submitted for approval in three categories – charitable, educational and research.

“Every charity is deemed to be a private foundation unless it satisfies the IRS that it meets one of the definitions of a public charity under Section 509(a). Section 509(a)(1) primarily includes churches, schools, hospitals, and other organizations that receive their public support primarily from gifts, grants and contributions from a broad group of people. Section 509(a)(2) covers organizations that receive their support from a combination of gifts, grants and contributions and fees for their exempt services. The methods of calculating these public support levels can be tricky. (See Ready Reference Page: “Calculating Public Support.”)”
