IRS guidelines for rewards
In order to maintain our non-profit 501(c)(3) status, we must follow this IRS guideline:
A section 501(c)(3) organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests. No part of the net earnings of a section 501(c)(3) organization may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.
To comply, unless otherwise stated, only girls and the chaperones we provide may participation in rewards that involve events and experiences. The ratio of girls to adults is determined by the safety guidelines in Volunteer Essentials, a GSUSA publication.
