A program service is generally an activity conducted by an organization to various other organizations or individuals to fulfill the purpose/mission of the organization. These activities also help the organization to accomplish its tax-exempt purpose.
A few common examples for program service accomplishments include:
- A section 501(c)(3) organization that conducts charitable activities, College degree programs, Assistance for victims of a natural disaster, or rehabilitation services to residents of a nursing home.
- A section 501(c)(5) labor union organization which conducts collective bargaining on behalf of its members
- A section 501(c)(6) organization that conducts meetings to discuss business issues with the employees.
- A section 501(c)(7) social club that creates recreational and dining facilities for members.
