Abstract

The twelve individuals filing this amicus brief are professors and scholars of the law of nonprofit organizations.  No party in this case represents all three of charity’s key stakeholders:  charities, states, and taxpayers who underwrite the charities’ funding.  Amici are participating in this litigation in order to  aid the Court in understanding how these three interests depend on one another.  They also attempt to provide a clearer understanding of state supervision of charities and how that supervision related to federal tax law. 

Keywords: SCOTUS, Charity, charitable, nonprofit, Attorney General, Donor Disclosure, Americans for Prosperity, amicus, charitable contribution, Section 501(c)(3)
