IRS 501(c)(3) Disclosures
The International Conference of Police Chaplains is designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. To be non-profit under IRS Section 501(c)(3), an organization must be organized and operate exclusively for exempt purposes as defined by the IRS code, and none of its earnings may benefit any private shareholder or individual. Being a 501(c)(3) organization also means publicly disclosing specific documents, including our bylaws, IRS Form 990, and our conflict of interest policy.
Bylaws are an organization's operating manual. ICPC's bylaws define organizational membership and leadership, committee structure and responsibilities, and the roles of regional directors and area representatives.
ICPC Conflict of Interest Policy
ICPC's conflict of interest policy is designed to protect our tax-exempt interest when we are contemplating entering into a transaction or arrangement that might benefit the private interest of an officer or director of the corporation or might result in a possible excess benefit transaction. Our policy is intended to supplement but not replace any applicable state and federal laws governing conflict of interest.
IRS Form 990
IRS Form 990 is used by 501(c)(3) organizations to provide the IRS with the information required by IRS Section 6033. ICPC's most recent Form 990 is available here for public inspection as required by IRS Section 6104, and our financial statements are available upon request.
