Friends of Libya Foundation, LLC, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that helps Americans make tax-deductible donations to Libyan charities in full compliance with U.S. law.
To foster humanitarian cooperation between the United States and Libya.
The Friends of Libya Foundation will make good faith efforts to respect donor intent in the expenditure of funds. By law, however, the Board of Directors must retain ultimate authority and discretion to use contributions made to us in a manner consistent with our tax-exempt purposes.
The Friends of Libya Foundation, LLC, founded August 6, 2012, has filed an application with the IRS for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. It normally takes several months for the IRS to make a determination as to the tax-exempt status of any new organization. In the meantime, it is permissible for the organization to operate as a non-profit, and to collect tax-deductible contributions. However, if for some reason the IRS determines that our purpose is not exempt, those contributions would then not be tax-deductible.
