The P.E.O. Foundation is a nonprofit corporation established in 1961 to encourage tax-deductible giving to the educational and charitable projects of the P.E.O. Sisterhood. Because it qualifies as a charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, gifts and bequests to the Foundation are deductible for United States and state income, estate and gift tax purposes. Gifts to local or state chapter funds are not tax-deductible because these entities are not qualified charities.
The P.E.O. Foundation is administered by a board of trustees who are members of P.E.O. and are assisted by P.E.O. Executive Office personnel. Management of investments follows established policies and guidelines with expert advice from independent money managers and consultants.In order to provide more personalized service in answering questions or providing information, the states/provinces/districts are divided among the three trustees of the P.E.O. Foundation. Please click here to obtain Contact Information of the P.E.O. Foundation Trustee
