    How can we verify your organization as a registered charity?

    FallenBrothers is a Charitable Organization registered with the
    Internal Revenue Service under the 501(c)(3), and is registered in New York State.

    To quickly verify, there are a couple of websites you can do a search.

    http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/search/eosearch.html When searching, enter
    'fallen' for name, AND 'Brewster' for town. That should bring us up
    immediately.

    I did a search on you at the IRS site, and it says " A public charity with a 50% deductibility limitation".
    What does that mean? I thought you said your gave everything to the families.


    If you do a search on every charity, we all seemed to be listed that way. If a lawyer or accountant, or the IRS could send us an email to explain what that means in plain English, please send it to Brian@FallenBrothers.com. I'd like to know what it means also.

    Regardless of what the IRS category Code says, ALL profits for the Fallen Brothers Foundation goes to the funds mentioned for each item. We are firefighters, volunteering our time and efforts.
