We are organized under the laws of Tennessee and section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code and we are governed by a volunteer board of directors from across the state.
Our sister organization, the IRS-designated 501(c )(3) Family Action Council of Tennessee, Inc. (FACT), is the tax-exempt educational arm of Family Action of Tennessee. Because FACT is a tax-exempt educational group, the IRS can limit what FACT can say about legislation and candidates.
That’s why we have our advocacy arm, Family Action of Tennessee, which is not tax-exempt, so that we can speak more freely. Those who give to Family Action of Tennessee won’t be able to deduct their contributions for state or federal income tax purposes, but they will have a passionate advocacy group on their side. Between these two organizations, we educate and inspire Tennesseans to greater involvement in the issues that support the well-being of our state.
