do environmental groups get tax breaks?

    It depends what is the objective of the group. The two main categories of tax-exempt non-profit organizations under the IRS code are 501 (c) 3 and 501 (c) 4. The first receives the most benefits, don’t pay taxes and donations made to them are tax deductible for the donors, but has the most restriction, only for charitable or education purposes. The second has less benefits, donations are not tax deductible, but can engage in issue advocacy. Neither of these categories allow for political campaigning (i.e. for a specific candidate or party). To confuse things more organizations often have different sister organizations or arms that have different classifications. So one organization my be registered 501 (c) 4 but have an education fund that is registered 501 (c) 3 and a Political Action Committee (PAC) for political campaign, with the revenue from each having to be accounted for separately.
