TCE is recognized as a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. The 501(c)(4) designation allows TCE to actively lobby legislators and other elected and appointed officials. This is the reason why contributions to TCE are not tax-deductible.
Our sister organization Texas Campaign for the Environment Fund (TCE Fund) is incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. TCE Fund’s mission is to engage people and organizations through action-oriented research, public education campaigns and programs that promote thriving, sustainable communities. The 501(c)(3) designation for TCE Fund means that contributions are 100% tax-deductible because TCE Fund does not engage in lobbying.
