IRS Revoked Delaware School Boards Association’s Non-Profit Status Six Years Ago, No Returns Filed In Nine Years

Wow!  The Delaware School Boards Association had their 501c3 status revoked by the Internal Revenue Service over five years ago.  The IRS doesn’t do that unless a non-profit corporation hasn’t filed a tax return for three consecutive years.  So how is it this non-profit which represents school boards across Delaware is allowed to even operate?  I know they charge a hefty amount for school boards to join their association, but at this time the Delaware Online Checkbook is down until the 19th.  I’ve seen five figure amounts going from school districts to this non-non-profit for yearly membership.


While John Marinucci is new to the role of Executive Director, I have to assume he would know about this. But if they don’t file tax returns, what are they doing with their money?  I heard other news regarding DSBA recently as well.  They are asking member school boards to pitch in extra to pay for Indian River’s membership in DSBA due to their financial hardships.  How nice…

Apparently, I’m not the first to discover this information but it doesn’t appear this non-profit cared about the exposure since they haven’t rectified the situation.  The IRS website has no information about the organization receiving a reinstatement of their 501c3 status…

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
