As we bring another year to a close at NGOsource, we invite private foundations and donor advised funds (“grantmakers”) to think about how to maximize equivalency determination (ED) validity periods. The ED validity period, which is dictated by U.S. tax law, indicates when a grantmaker can rely on the written advice provided in the ED. The validity period of an ED is based on an organization’s fiscal year.
This has been a huge year of growth and change for NGOsource.
