The GCO Foundation is the arm of GeorgiaCarry.Org that conducts our litigation efforts. Gifts to the GCO Foundation are tax-deductible to the donor to the extent permissible by law.
GCO is comprised of two separate corporate entities, GeorgiaCarry.Org, Inc and the GCO Foundation, Inc. Although both GeorgiaCarry.Org and the GCO Foundation are part of the same overall organization, it is necessary that GCO have two separate organizations in order for GCO to do a broad range of work in protecting Georgian’s right to bear arms. This Web site collectively refers to the two organizations under the name “GCO”.
Although there is some overlap in the work done by each organization, certain activities GCO does to protect Georgian’s firearm rights must be done by one organization and not the other. This is primarily in the area of lobbying. The GeorgiaCarry.Org engages in legislative lobbying. As an organization that is eligible to receive contributions that are tax-deductible by the contributor, federal law limits the extent to which the GCO Foundation may engage in lobbying activities. Most of the lobbying activity done by GCO and discussed in this Web site is done by GeorgiaCarry.Org. By contrast, most of GCO’s litigation efforts described in this Web site are done by the GCO Foundation.
You may make a donation to either GeorgiaCarry.Org or the GCO Foundation. A donation to either organization will be used to support, promote and defend every Georgian’s right to bear arms. However, each organization will only use the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the specific activities it conducts as part of the overall GCO mission. A donor may make a tax-deductible gift only to the GCO Foundation. A donor who chooses to “Join” and become a card-carrying member of GCO is making a contribution to the GeorgiaCarry.Org. Membership dues and other gifts to GeorgiaCarry.Org are not tax deductible.
