Welcome to EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. Today’s episode focuses on IRC Section 4945(g), which provides an exception for grants to individuals so that the penalty taxes for such grants won’t apply. We cover the requirements for a private foundation to establish a program that makes grants to individuals, awarded on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis according to a procedure approved in advance by the IRS.

The episode covers the requirements for demonstrating to the satisfaction of the IRS that the grant constitutes a scholarship or fellowship grant or the grant constitutes a prize or award, the purpose of which is to achieve a specific objective, produce a report or other similar product, or improve or enhance a literary, artistic, musical, scientific, teaching, or other similar capacity, skill, or talent of the grantee.
