- An annual collection of voluntary gifts from members which is divided amongst the church staff members who support the choir in the form of an end-of-year gift
- An annual/semi-annual request for contributions toward a fund used to get flowers/cards for members who are sick, have lost family, or otherwise in situations where we'd like to do something nice for them.
I'm wondering if we qualify as a social club under 501(c)7, and could get an EIN and be declared tax-exempt on that basis? (Obviously, contributions to a 501(c)7 aren't tax-deductible, I know.) However, we don't charge membership dues, so that's potentially a little questionable. Anyone know more about whether this is an option for us? If not, is there a different way we might approach this?
