501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Nonprofit Corporation
FEIN (Tax ID #): 20-5708332
Smart Life Forum, Inc. (SLF) is a California nonprofit corporation organized under state law for educational and scientific purposes as a public benefit corporation. Our primary mission is to provide credible health education to the public with an emphasis on optimal wellness, anti-aging medicine, and longevity.
SLF is approved for tax-exempt status by the IRS under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and by the State of California under section 23701(d) of the California Revenue and Taxation Code. As such, donations to Smart Life Forum, Inc. are tax deductible to the extent allowed by federal and California state law.
Deductible portion of membership dues
SLF membership is deductible to the extent allowed by law. In figuring your deduction, the deductible portion would be the full amount paid for membership during the calendar year.
Contributions: cash & non-cash
SLF, a Public Benefit Corporation under California state law, is treated as a “public charity” under its 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption from the IRS. As such, both cash and noncash contributions to SLF are deductible to the extent allowed by law.
For charitable contributions of $250 or more, current IRS regulations require that the donor get a written statement from the charity listing any cash contribution or describing any donated property. There is no prescribed format for the written statement. Letters, postcards, and electronic (email) or computer-generated forms are acceptable.
The donor is responsible for the valuation of any donated property. However, the charity’s written statement must provide sufficient description to support the donor’s contribution.
How to make a contribution
Cash donations can be made by mail or in person at any of our monthly meetings. Please make your check payable to “Smart Life Forum, Inc.” and give it to our membership chair or designee.
For contributions of $250 or more, the treasurer will automatically provide you a receipt, but will be happy to provide a receipt for any amount, if requested.
Noncash donations of electronic equipment or other items can be made by appointment. Our membership chair or designee will be happy to provide written substantiation of the donated item(s) upon acceptance. (Valuation to be specified by you; we reserve the right to refuse items.) If you have a non-cash item that you would like to donate, please contact Susan Downs (Susan Downs) ahead of time to find out if it is something that SLF needs and could use.
