How is an ED made?

An ED is based on a set of detailed information about the organization's operations and finance.  Specifically, a non-U.S. organization is deemed equivalent to a U.S. Public Charity if it meets this three prong test:

  1. It is organized like a US public charity;
  2. It is operated like a US public charity; and
  3. It meets certain minimum public support requirements (if required).
