a
Check this box to attest that you normally receive at least one-third of your support from public sources or you normally receive at least 10
percent of your support from public sources and you have other characteristics of a publicly supported organization. Sections 509(a)(1) and
170(b)(1)(A)(vi).
b
Check this box to attest that you normally receive more than one-third of your support from a combination of gifts, grants, contributions,
membership fees, and gross receipts (from permitted sources) from activities related to your exempt functions and normally receive not more
than one-third of your support from investment income and unrelated business taxable income. Section 509(a)(2).

these requirements. These specific provisions require that you operate to avoid liability for private foundation excise taxes under sections
4941-4945.
Check this box to attest that your organizing document contains the provisions required by section 508(e) or that your organizing document
does not need to include the provisions required by section 508(e) because you rely on the operation of state law in your particular state to
meet the requirements of section 508(e). (See the instructions for explanation of the section 508(e) requirements.)
