A chamber of Commerce is not a 501 C(3) organization. This chamber of Commerce went from being rightfully classified up until 2008 as a 501 c(6) and since then created a new Chamber of Commerce "foundation" and filed for a 501 c(3) and are filing all chamber of commerce income, expenses, etc under this foundation. This is against IRS code (law) and is not right for every other Chamber of commerce in the area and comparable status (Rockford, Janesville) which are both c (6) organizations and rightfully so according to law.
