Incorporation/Tax Status Identification
FaithCentre , Department of Pennsylvania, was established during 1974 in State College, PA and incorporated 9 February 2002 (Incorporation ID 3086951). FaithCentre is a non-profit 501(c)4 organization.  501(c)4s are thus tax-exempt non-profit organizations.

Social Welfare Organizations

* "civic leagues or organizations not organized for profit, but operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare,
* "or local associations of employees, the membership of which is limited to the employees of a designated person or persons in a particular municipality;
* "and the net earnings of which are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational, or recreational purposes.”

An organization is not operated primarily for the promotion of social welfare if its primary activity is operating a social club for the benefit, pleasure, or recreation of its members, or is carrying on a business with the general public in a manner similar to organizations operated for profit.

Seeking legislation germane to the organization's programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. Thus, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may further its exempt purposes through lobbying as its primary activity without jeopardizing its exempt status. An organization that has lost its section 501(c)(3) status due to substantial attempts to influence legislation may not thereafter qualify as a section 501(c)(4) organization. In addition, a section 501(c)(4) organization that engages in lobbying may be required to either provide notice to its members regarding the percentage of dues paid that are applicable to lobbying activities or pay a proxy tax.

The promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. However, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax under section 527(f). For further information regarding political and lobbying activities of section 501(c) organizations, see Election Year Issues, Political Campaign and Lobbying Activities of IRC 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) Organizations, and Revenue Ruling 2004-06.
