Though known publically as “The Pearson Foundation,” our name is, more fully, The Pearson Charitable Foundation.
It is under this name, and with the tax ID number 11-3690722, that each year we complete and file IRS Form 990. This form is required to be submitted each year by non-profits, including independent 501c3 organizations like us.
Once submitted, an organization’s IRS Form 990 is a public document, available for public inspection.
General information about tax data required of charities and other non-profits can be found at the IRS website.
For thoughtful guidance about the value of this information in assessing a non-profit, we recommend reviewing “Understanding the IRS Form 990” at the GuideStar website.
