[liberationtech] Some non-technical questions about Haystack

If I recall correctly, organizations that raise less than $25,000 have not
been traditionally required to file a 990 with the IRS. Those that raise
between 25-500K can file 990-EZ forms, which is a shortened version of the
990. Regardless, I wouldn't be surprised that you couldn't find a 990 form.
Most organizations that small don't file forms and even if they do the ones
posted online by sites like guidestar.org usually lag behind by a few years.
