Well, if I understand you correctly, you’re wondering why an outfit would have two forms … one a 501c3 and the other a 501c4. Well, it’s not unusual for an org to do that. One of its iterations can take donations that are tax exempt for the org but not tax deductible for the donor ( i.e. 501c4), which leaves the org free to operate politically. But then for those supporters who will only donate if it’s tax deductible, there is the 501c3 separate org that can’t operate politically, but can do “education” etc., and also pay rather hefty salaries to the principals. They are just two sides of the same coin, gaming the tax system.
