Election Integrity Project California Launches New IRC 501(c)(4) Affiliate,
Election Integrity Project Action, Inc.
Outreach to broader range of organizations and supporters.
Santa Clarita, California (May 10, 2021) –
Election Integrity Project®California, Inc. (EIPCa) has launched an affiliate, Election Integrity Project®Action, Inc. (EIPAction), to broaden its outreach in support of its nonpartisan mission of election integrity. EIPAction is a nonprofit public benefit corporation, incorporated in Wyoming last month. Under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(4), EIPAction is distinct from a 501(c)(3) charity, and therefore has more flexibility in its activities, such as more extensive lobbying, and less disclosure of donors.
EIPCa is a nonpartisan, nonprofit public benefit corporation, tax exempt under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3), that works to ensure every lawfully cast vote is accurately counted. As a nonpartisan organization, EIPCa does not participate in any political campaign, nor does it endorse any candidate for public office.
EIPAction is intended to bolster, not duplicate, ongoing efforts for election integrity. The affiliation between EIPCa and EIP Action will facilitate cooperation with additional organizations and supporters.
Like EIPCa, EIPAction gives priority to California, precisely because most Beltway-based election activists ignore California’s critical election integrity issues. EIPCa’s efforts in nearby states, such as Nevada and Arizona, are also within the scope of EIP Action.
This type of “Action” affiliate is often established by charities to utilize Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(4). For example, American Cancer Society, a 501(c)(3) charity, is affiliated with American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization.
Donations to EIPAction, because it is a 501(c)(4) corporation, are not a charitable contribution, and are not tax-deductible. Accordingly, such general-purpose donations are not reported to the Internal Revenue Service along with its annual IRS Form 990 tax return.
EIPAction is intended to complement, not detract from, the nonpartisan mission and commitment of EIPCa. Specifically, the Articles of Incorporation of EIPAction prohibit it from engaging in political campaign advocacy or “electioneering” that would require reporting of specific earmarked donations and expenditures to the IRS and/or the Federal Election Commission.

Of course, EIPCa still welcomes your charitable contributions large and small. EIPCa is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public benefit organization, and contributions to EIPCa are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. www.eip-ca.com/donate
Linda Paine, President and Co-founder,
California's elections have been stolen for years. I will bet money that California has actually been voting Red for decades.
I was there. The state did have a substantial "Republican Party" but they sold out the state to the Democrats in back room deals much like what has been done here with the McCain faction controlling the Republican Party and selling us out at the drop of a hat when it suits them. How else can you explain McCain dying in office and the Party is still in the grips of what ever monster that was using him and Flake, Ducey and Rusty Bowels, the Board of Supervisors and on and on? It is time for a resorting and proving UP, what is real and what is RiNO?
Flake was a real traitor. Made the Tea Party movement look bad.
