NTEE code list, National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities codes

What is NTEE?

NTEE stands for National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) code. An NTEE code is a three-character series of letters and numbers that generally summarize an organization’s purpose. In case of applying for tax exemption using the form 1023, you need to select an NTEE code that best describes your organization from the list of NTEE codes on this page.

NTEE codes are also used for purposes other than identification of exempt organizations described in section 501(c)(3). Therefore, all codes in the list do not necessarily describe a 501(c)(3) purpose. Selecting the appropriate NTEE code is important as some donors use the codes to identify potential recipients of grants.

NTEE codes are broken down by groups alphabetically, here’s a little NTEE cheat list to help you find a relevant code. There’s no good way of me giving you any kind of meaningful search function to sort through this table, however you can use CTRL + F (Command + F on Mac) on your keyboard to search for the NTEE code.

For example, if your organization is a church, press CTRL + F and type in Church and it will highlight all the NTEE codes that have the word church in them.
