International Federation of Fly Fishers Non-Profit Status



The International Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) is a non-profit New York corporation recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a Section 501 (c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization.  The original status was granted by the IRS on January 12, 1994. This non-profit tax-exempt status has been extended to IFFF's Councils and Charter Clubs through a non-profit Group Exemption from the IRS.  The IFFF's EIN is 23-7037444, the IFFF Group EIN is 81-0514222 and the IFFF Group Exemption Number (GEN) is 9453.

Donations to IFFF, its Councils and Charter Clubs are deductible by donors as provided by IRS regulations under Section 170.  The FFF is listed on the IRS website under Exempt Organizations Select Check (search with FFF's EIN) and includes the information that contributions to its subordinate organizations are covered by the group exemption.  Most subordinate organizations are not separately listed.  IRS Publication 4573, Group Exemptions, states the subordinate organization need not be itself listed.  Donors may rely upon the central organization verification with respect to the deductibility of contributions to subordinates covered in a section 501(c)(3) group tax-exempt exemption ruling.

Below is the most recent IRS letter recognizing the IFFF's non-profit 501(c)(3) status including its subordinates.  Following this letter is a list of the FFF's Councils and Charter Clubs which are included in the IFFF's Group Exemption.  Donors can rely on IFFF's verification that these Councils and Charter Clubs qualify under FFF's Group Exemption as non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations.
