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.
For convenience, we’ve listed our 2008-2010 documentation here.
Please check back for the 2011 Form 990, which will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
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.
