The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests, and no part of a section 501(c)(3) organization's net earnings may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. If the organization engages in an excess benefit transaction with a person having substantial influence over the organization, an excise tax may be imposed on the person and any organization managers agreeing to the transaction.

If the organization's constitution and charter mandate a board of directors and president - the organization may not legally operate without them - but the organization may change organization's documents - assuming all mandatory provisions mentioned above will be in effect and submit amended documents to the IRS for confirming tax exempt status.
