Charity NTEE Classification API

NTEE Classification - categories

This method enables you to provide a list of categories to your end-users allowing them to focus their search on a specific category. OrgHunter uses the NTEE Classification System developed by the National Center for Charitable Statistics as part of its keyword searching criteria. The National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) system is used by the IRS and NCCS to classify nonprofit organizations. It is also used by the Foundation Center to classify both grants and grant recipients (typically nonprofits or governments).
