There should not be much difference.
Provide the employer identification number (EIN) of your 501c3 corporation in the “Taxpayer Identification Number” section.
Provide the name in the name section.
Check the box "Other" and write "501c3 corporation" on that line.


OK... that's what I was going to do, but I appreciate the confirmation. Thanks.
