Mission: Who we are, what we do

Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility (CATER) was formed to educate the public regarding existing and proposed governmental legislation, programs, and activities affecting the citizens of Anaheim, California, so they may participate more fully and knowledgeably in the activities of their governing agencies; to mobilize the public to participate and make their views known concerning such governmental activity; to serve the public interest by intervening in governmental activity when appropriate, and related activities.

Vision: How are we getting to where we want to be

In the context of its general purpose, CATER shall seek contributions, grants and other income, invest and manage its resources, and apply its resources in furtherance of its mission. CATER’s resources are irrevocably dedicated to public benefit purposes. No part of the net earnings, properties, or assets of the Corporation, on dissolution or otherwise, shall inure to the benefit of any private person or individual, or to any Director or Officer of the Corporation. On liquidation or dissolution, all properties and assets remaining after payment, or provision for payment, of all debts and liabilities of the Corporation shall be distributed to a nonprofit fund, foundation, or corporation that is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes and that has established its exempt status under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(4)

The activities of CATER may consist of carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence legislation; it shall not participate or intervene in any campaign (including the publication or distribution of statements) on behalf of any candidate for public office; and, it shall not, except in an insubstantial degree, engage in any activities or exercise any powers that are not in furtherance of the purposes described above.

Nonprofit status

Registration with the IRS for status as a 501c4 is pending. Donations to CATER are not tax deductible. The value of supporting the work of CATER comes not from a write-off on an annual return, but in moving Anaheim toward a better tomorrow. We appreciate your help.
