  • Community [r]: Generally, a group of organisms sharing an environment. In human communities the shared environment may be defined by mutual interests, pooled resources, common beliefs, shared pursuits, perceived needs, or other common traits or characteristics, and may be associated with a shared identity which in the case of physical communities may include a sense of place. [e]
  • Economics [r]: The analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. [e]
  • Political science [r]: Social science that studies politics, political systems and political behavior. [e]
  • Sociology [r]: Social science that studies human social behavior or social relations, social institutions and structures, demography, public opinion, social welfare, social psychology and some forms of political behavior, as well as the history of sociology. [e]

  • 501(c)(3) [r]: In U.S. tax law, an organization that has been determined to be nonprofit and nonpolitical; contributions to it are tax-deductible; it can engage in research and education but not efforts to affect specific policy or legislation, often a delicate line. [e]
  • 501(c)(4) [r]: In U.S. tax law, an organization that has been determined to be nonprofit, but may be political; contributions to it are not tax-deductible; it can engage in research and education, affect specific policy or legislation, but not directly contribute to candidates or campaign for or against them.
