Leave a note for Lon

It isn't often you get to leave comments about Lon.  Sign up, bear witness & get sanctified.  Show him some love or lack of it.  Stomp up and down on the "fiction" button above his propaganda pieces.

Lon's passing the hat for STICC...STICC is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity.  Anyone aware of Mr. Reuben's compliance with laws regarding his 501(c)(3)?

http://sweetness-light.com/archive/501c ... ak-the-law

[Extract]
From the guidelines of the Internal Revenue Service:

    J. ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ILLEGAL OR CONTRARY TO PUBLIC POLICY

    1. Introduction

    Exempt purposes may generally be equated with the public good, and violations of law are the antithesis of the public good. Therefore, the conduct of such activities may be a bar to exemption. Factors that have to be considered in determining the effect of illegal activities on an organization’s qualification for exemption are the paragraph of IRC 501(c) under which the organization is exempt or is applying for exemption, and the nature and extent of the illegal activities engaged in by the organization.

    2. IRC 501(c)(3) and IRC 501(c)(4) Organizations

    A. Charity Law

    Exemption recognized under IRC 501(c)(3) is unique in that, unlike exemption under other paragraphs of IRC 501(c), it is grounded in charity law, so that denial of exemption under IRC 501(c)(3) may be based on charity law.

    (1) Substantiality Test

    Violation of constitutionally valid laws is inconsistent with exemption under IRC 501(c)(3). As a matter of trust law, one of the main sources of the general law of charity, planned activities that violate laws are not in furtherance of a charitable purpose. "A trust cannot be created for a purpose which is illegal. The purpose is illegal … if the trust tends to induce the commission of crime or if the accomplishment of the purpose is otherwise against public policy…. Where a policy is articulated in a statute making certain conduct a criminal offense, then …, a trust is illegal if its performance involves such criminal conduct, or if it tends to encourage such conduct." IV Scott on Trusts Section 377 (3d ed. 1967). Thus, all charitable trusts (and by implication all charitable organizations, regardless of their form) are subject to the requirement that their purpose may not be illegal or contrary to public policy. Rev. Rul. 71-447, 1971-2 C.B. 230; Restatement (Second) of Trusts, Section 377, Comment c (1959). Moreover by conducting criminal activities, an organization increases the burden of government and thus thwarts a well recognized charitable goal, i.e., relief of the burdens of government.

    Reg. 1.501(c)(3)-1(c)(1) states that an organization will not be regarded as operated "exclusively" for IRC 501(c)(3) purposes if more than an insubstantial part of its activities is not in furtherance of an exempt purpose. The presence of a single non-charitable purpose, if substantial in nature, will destroy the exemption regardless of the number or importance of truly charitable purposes. Better Business Bureau v. United States, 326 U.S. 279 (1945). Therefore, if an organization engages in illegal acts that are a substantial part of its activities, it does not qualify for exemption under IRC 501(c)(3).

And this:

    (4) Planning Illegal Acts

    Not only is the actual conduct of illegal activities inconsistent with exemption, but the planning and sponsoring of such activities are also incompatible with charity and social welfare. Rev. Rul. 75-384 holds that an organization formed to promote world peace that planned and sponsored protest demonstrations at which members were urged to commit acts of civil disobedience did not qualify for IRC 501(c)(3) or (4) exemption. G.C.M. 36153, dated January 31, 1975, states that because planning and sponsoring illegal acts are in themselves inconsistent with charity and social welfare it is not necessary to determine whether illegal acts were, in fact, committed in connection with the resulting demonstrations or whether such a determination can be made prior to conviction of an accused. However, it is necessary to establish that the planning and sponsorship are attributable to the organization, if exemption is to be denied or revoked on this ground.

Saving Teens in Crisis Needs Your Help To Continue Providing Scholarships For Struggling Teens

Thu Dec 15 18:54
By Lon


Saving Teens in Crisis helps assist troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues that need financial resources for interventions. They need your help in the upcoming year to continue with their mission of providing these scholarships to families in need.

Woodbury Reports would like to announce on behalf of Saving Teens in Crisis Collaborative, a non-profit organization that assists troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues who don't have the financial resources for quality intervention, the accomplishments of the 2011 year. "The goal is to get all of the scholarships that are available in one place so that people in need will have a single place to go to ascertain whether there is appropriate help available. This could be a family or perhaps an IECA member that is working pro Bono on behalf of a needy family. The key is that there is one reliable source for both for a complete list of options and a procedure for mapping those needs with a solution. Saving Teens will then use their methodology and volunteer consultants to match the families with the scholarships that are available, says John Reuben, Founder of Saving Teens in Crisis Collaborative."

Organizations offering scholarships are featured on their website as collaborators if the donating programs desire it but the list of scholarships will be only accessible to the educational consultants looking for help for a particular family. That way STICC will insure that they have kids placed in programs based on the "fit" rather than the scholarship. Rueben says, "We hope you will contact us with any scholarship that you are aware of. The larger the pool of alternatives we have the more families we will be able to match with appropriate providers."

Saving Teens has come a long way since our inception in 2004. Some of our accomplishments in our mission to help families include the following:

· We have fully funded several disadvantaged families through an entire continuum of care spanning over 12-18 months.

· We have fully funded over 60 aftercare scholarships to help needy families adjust after their child comes back from treatment.

· We have helped many other families with partial scholarships along with free or reduced service fees.

· We have received and managed a large grant from the United States Department of Justice.

· We have been selected as the official charity for The National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP).

· We are the recognized resource for families, professionals, and programs attempting to assist teenagers in crisis.

John Reuben says "Saving Teens is where families turn when they have given up all hope for providing their children the help they deserve but cannot afford. Thank you for making this all possible. Much has been accomplished as the result of your support. Will you make a gift today so that much more can be realized?" Please sign on to the STICC website and make a donation at www.savingteens.org.

Saving Teens® In Crisis Collaborative is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists troubled teens and their families struggling with substance abuse and other emotional issues who don't have the financial resources for quality intervention.If you have any questions please feel free to contact John D. Reuben, Chairman and Founder at 978-852-2144 or by email at  [email protected], or visit the web site www.strugglingteens.com.

Well, they do seem to all cross reference one another, in a myriad of ways, as a means of artificially jacking up their credibility.

Check out all the so-called scientific references in Ellens Behrens' "research" papers. Which are published, incidentally, in NATSAP's very own "peer-reviewed" journal; peers being other members of NATSAP, of course:
