DOE Faith/Community-Based Resource Center has been a Central (Parent) Organization, since 2001.  A Central Organization is an organization that has subordinate organizations, on whose behalf the Central organization has applied for tax-exempt recognition. . Although many are not aware of it, the IRS has recognized this practice for decades. The Roman Catholic Church in the U.S. is a prime example.
