FAQ: Is OneShare Health a Non-Profit Organization?

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on May 3, 2022

Yes! OneShare Health LLC is a Christian non profit organization and it shares the Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status of its parent, OneShare International (d/b/a Anabaptist HealthShare).For readers who aren’t familiar, a non-profit organization (NPO), also known as a “nonbusiness entity” or “not-for-profit organization,” is one that is dedicated to furthering a particular social cause or advocating for a shared point of view. Rather than distributing income to the organization's shareholders, leaders, or members, a non-profit will use its surplus of revenue to further achieve its ultimate objective, which is typically humanitarian in nature.

Non-profits are tax-exempt, or charitable, meaning they do not pay income tax on the money that they receive for their organization.
