Last call for some (small) nonprofits

Call it an occupational hazard, particularly at a government transparency nonprofit, but I enjoy reading stuff like this notice from the IRS about the automatic deletion of nonprofit status from organizations that haven’t filed with the IRS in the last three years. It used to be that inactive groups could coast without filing for ages, but that changed. Most nonprofit orgs with an IRS determination have to file annually — churches are a main exception — though for small groups that probably means the so-called “postcard” filing. Originally hundreds of thousands of groups — those that hasn’t filed for three years — were slated for deletion, but the IRS has given non-filers one last chance, due October 15.

In many cases, there are really defunct organizations, and should be deleted. But the following have Unitarian or Universalist in their name. Some are relics, others I think active. Do you know anything about their current status? And if they’re active, who needs to be contacted? (If not, we can be grateful for their past service.)

And some detail about this move from Blue Avocado, a nonprofit resource I like.

  1. About halfway down, the Weller Unitrust… don’t know much about the trust or what purpose it served when it existed. What’s striking though, is the Service Committee hasn’t occupied 78 Beacon St., Boston since 1989. This makes it pretty clear to me that this “purging” process reflects the IRS’s shortcomings with record-keeping as much as it does with nonprofits’ responsibility for filing.

  2. I have a hard time pinning this on the IRS. At minimum, these groups have not filed in three years and if a nonprofit disbanded I would think it has a responsibility with filing with the IRS, and not the IRS chasing the groups. So I’d bet the Weller Fund dates — and ended with — that old office.
