Whitman College may only rent facilities to government agencies and non-profit organizations based upon a ruling by the Department of Revenue regarding the tax-exempt status of our campus property. External organizations are required to provide Whitman College with a copy of your Internal Revenue Service Exemption Letter indicating that your organization is incorporated specifically as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. (Please note that a federal identification number is not sufficient proof.)
