Is the Vitamin D Council a 501(c)(3)?

Yes! We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Here is our letter of determination.

501(c)(3) businesses are organizations that are organized and operated for charitable, scientific, public safety, literacy or educational purposes. This means we operate a little differently:

  • We are not driven to make profit.
  • We are a mission-based organization. Our mission is to educate on vitamin D and vitamin D deficiency, and we measure our success on how well we fulfill this mission.
  • We rely on charitable donations. When you donate to 501(c)(3) nonprofits, your donation may be tax-deductible.
  • Our staff is governed by our Board of Directors, rather than by a sole owner or shareholders. Our Board believe strongly in our mission and request staff do their best to take on this mission.

Where can I find your tax returns?

You can find them right here!

As a nonprofit, our 990s are available to the public, but we have them right here for you.

How are you funded?

Our work is made possible by membership fees, donations from individuals, and from the support of our generous sponsors. About 80% of our revenue comes from memberships, test kits and donations, while 20% comes from our sponsors.
