Charitable organizations have philanthropic objectives, and look out for the social well-being of the society. As such, they are treated differently in each state, depending on the state laws. In some cases, such organizations get exemptions from taxes and tariffs. Larger nonprofits operate in several states and might have to face litigation and retaliation for a variety of reasons. Most nonprofits prefer to stay away from legal disputes, but where money is involved, litigation is an ever-present danger.
