Be more collaborative, productive, and efficient with Google Workspace for Nonprofits

501(c)3 is prohibited from conducting political campaign activities to intervene with elections.

They can generate sales revenue, but it must go back into the organization to make it better, not shareholders.  A (c)3 is free to generate as much revenue as they please while helping society.  Perhaps Hospitals are at the far end of this extreme.

"The Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy was founded by a group of West Virginians in 2014 to usher in this vision, and lay the intellectual groundwork for West Virginia’s brighter future. Cardinal’s founders believed that West Virginia must get the government out of the way so its citizens can craft their own future free of unnecessary government intrusion, bureaucracy, arbitrary regulation, and burdensome taxes."
