Participating in ICG's Group Exemption Letter (GEL)
The ICG provides a way for its U.S. chapters to be recognized as 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. ICG's Group Exemption Letter (GEL) is issued by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and enables chapters to share in the ICG's tax-exempt status and accept donations that are tax-deductible under the law.
Participating chapters do not have to file a separate application for exemption with the IRS,Participating chapters also do not have to pay fees to obtain an exemption letter, or wait the normal four year period. This benefit is available without charge to any U.S. ICG chapter that chooses to participate.
