We need that boardie law student, who is well studied in libel and slander and restoration to take the case!

As I've mentioned previously......I took several law courses at a somewhat respectable community college in Booger Hole, West Virginia, right next to the nicest Piggly Wiggly you've ever seen.

Lible and Slandir are my specialties.

Was that Bugtussle CC?

No.  That one was for the lower class students with no money.

I went to the one in the ritzy section of Booger Hole.....across from the sewage plant.

Booger Hole?  Is that a typo as it certainly sounds like a body access point.

Giving this thread a bump.  I decided to do a little searching online and I found a few things that may be of interest.  I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable in the law will be able to help interpret this.

First, I looked up Berkbridge on the IRS web site:
https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/displayAll.do?dispatchMethod=displayAllInfo&Id=5810275&ein=472554006&names=berkbridge

If you expand the "Form 990-N (e-Postcard)" section, IRS lists the following basic information:

Berkbridge Foundation
401 Ryland Street, Suite 200A
Reno, NV 89502
EIN: 47-2554006
Principal Officer:  Robert Jalali
Gross receipts not greater than $50,000
No web site

I'm pretty sure that their gross receipts are well above $50,000, so that stands out.

Perhaps more interesting is the "Auto-Revocation List" section, which reads:

Organizations whose federal tax exempt status was automatically revoked for not filing a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years. Important note: Just because an organization appears on this list, it does not mean the organization is currently revoked, as they may have been reinstated.
Exemption Type: 501(c)(3)
Exemption Reinstatement Date: 05-15-2017
Revocation Date: 05-15-2017
Revocation Posting Date: 08-16-2017

I showed this to a friend who's a lawyer, and he said:  "Yes, sketchy. IRS revoked their status May 2017 for failure to file anything for at least 3 yrs, but they then did and were reinstated retroactively."

Next, I looked up Berkbridge on the Nevada Secretary of State site:
https://esos.nv.gov/EntitySearch/OnlineEntitySearch

Here's some of what you'll find there:

What jumps out at me here is that there was no end-of-year filing in 2018, but they went in and updated their records on August 7, 2019.  I can't tell for sure, but my suspicion is that they may have changed the value of "Solicits Charitable Contribution" to "No" at this time.  This thread kicked off in September 2019, and I'm not remembering whether they were already under scrutiny dating back to August 7.

Curious to hear if anyone else is able to glean more clues from all this, or has any ideas for further research.
