Oregon Statutes - Chapter 624 - Food Service Facilities - Section 624.101 - “Benevolent organization” defined.

As used in ORS 624.106 and 624.111, “benevolent organization” means any person organized and existing for charitable, benevolent, eleemosynary, humane, patriotic, religious, philanthropic, recreational, social, educational, civic, fraternal or other nonprofit purposes. The fact that contributions to an organization do not qualify for a charitable deduction for tax purposes or that the organization is not otherwise exempt from payment of federal income taxes pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, constitutes prima facie evidence that the organization is not a bona fide benevolent organization. For purposes of this section, each subordinate lodge, chapter, council, grange, church, parish or other subdivision of an organization constitutes a separate organization. [Formerly 624.015]
