FFI is a Non-Profit

Fly Fishers International Inc Non-Profit Status

Non-Profit Status Includes FFI, Councils, and Charter Clubs

Fly Fishers International (FFI), formerly known as International Federation of Fly Fishers, is a non-profit New York corporation recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a Section 501 (c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization.  The original status was granted by the IRS on January 12, 1994. This non-profit tax-exempt status has been extended to FFI's Councils and Charter Clubs through a non-profit Group Exemption from the IRS.  The FFI's EIN is 23-7037444, the FFI Group EIN is 81-0514222 and the FFI Group Exemption Number (GEN) is 9453.  Donors can rely on the current IRS confirmation letter issued in 2017 as proof that the organization and the subordinate entities are covered by the letter (download below).

Donations to FFI, its Councils and Charter Clubs are deductible by donors as provided by IRS regulations under Section 170.  FFI is listed on the IRS website under Exempt Organizations Select Check (search with FFI's EIN) and includes the information that contributions to its subordinate organizations are covered by the group exemption.  Most subordinate organizations are not separately listed.  IRS Publication 4573, Group Exemptions, states the subordinate organization need not be itself listed.  Donors may rely upon the central organization verification with respect to the deductibility of contributions to subordinates covered in a section 501(c)(3) group tax-exempt exemption ruling.

Below is the most recent IRS letter recognizing FFI's non-profit 501(c)(3) status including its subordinates.  Following this letter is a list of FFI's Councils and Charter Clubs which are included in FFI's Group Exemption.  Donors can rely on FFI's verification that these Councils and Charter Clubs qualify under FFI's Group Exemption as non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations.
