Advocates for Children in Therapy Updated Website

October 14, 2010

The Advocates for Children in Therapy (a not-for-profit organization) website has recently been redesigned. Videos have been added and issues of AT News going back to 2002 are now posted on the website (click on “News” to read them).

ACT’s ISP, Project DoD is to be especially commended for having the courage to withstand unwarranted DMCA complaints and other forms of harassment that other ISPs were not able or willing to withstand. This is yet another example is that although some battles are lost, freedom of speech on the internet ultimately prevails.

Note that insinuations have recently been made that ACT is not a non-profit because it is not included on the IRS list of tax exempt charities, 501(c)(3) organizations. This is a common misunderstanding many people have about the nature of non-profits. Tax exempt charities are one subcategory of nonprofits. In other words, not all non-profits are 501(c)(3) charities and those that are not would not be listed in that way with the IRS on their website. ACT is not a 501(c)(3) so it is not listed with the IRS on their website, but it is non-profit. The main difference is that donations to a 501(c)(3) are tax deductible whereas donations to other non-profits are usually not.

Project DoD, however, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
