Local Organization’s Nonprofit Status In Question

A deal that would move a camp for the homeless in Portland, Ore., has come into doubt after questions about the tax-exempt status of the organization that pays for the camp have emerged.

According to a report on KATU.com, the city of Portland and Right 2 Dream Too came to agreement on a plan that would move the camp to the city’ Pearl District. Yet that plan is now in jeopardy after a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) surfaced that claimed the organization that runs the camp is not actually a nonprofit.

City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, who has worked for years to find Right 2 Dream Too a new home, told KATU that she was not aware that the camp was not recognized as a tax-exempt organization by the IRS. She said that determining the exact status of the organization had to be cleared up before the deal could be finalized.

Right 2 Dream Too’s website lists its current monthly costs as $1,500 per month and covers these expenses through donations. Fritz confirmed that the camp would probably not have to pay rent at its new location. When contacted by KATU, Ibrahim Mubarak, the camp’s leader, refused to comment on the camp’s finances.
