The Highlands University Foundation has violated federal tax law by donating to a political campaign. Now, the group is trying to get the money back.
Recently, the Optic discovered that the foundation, whose main purpose is to provide scholarships to students, gave $250 last September to the campaign of state Rep. Thomas Garcia, D-Ocat.
The foundation is a charitable nonprofit in the eyes of the Internal Revenue Service. To enjoy that status, such groups are forbidden from donating to political campaigns.
