If you are living in the UK and want to “give back” a community or a particular cause as well as general philanthropic initiatives including religious, educational, charitable, and other activities that serve the common good, then the recommended route to go is to set up a Registered Charity under The Charities Act 2006 - which will have added tax and fundraising benefits amongst others. Please visit the UK government website which has all the guides and information from how to pick your trustees right down to making an application to register your charity.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Code regulates the registration of non-profit organisations being those organisations which provide some sort of public or community benefit not-for-profit. Section 501(c) (3) of the IRS Code classifies various charitable organisations but it is important that you select the correct one. Please visit the IRS Charities and Non-profits section which explains tax exemptions and the IRS Code.
