To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
The Modernized e-File (“MeF”) format Form 990 data for the following tax-exempt charitable organizations:
NUMBERSUSA EDUCATION & RESEARCH FOUNDATION
NUMBERSUSA ACTION INC
Focus on the Family
HERITAGE CHRISTIAN SERVICES INC
Homeless Empowerment Project, Inc.
COUNCIL ON AMERICAN-ISLAMIC RELATIONS INC

GuideStar USA, Inc.
CATHOLICS COME HOME INC
I am speciﬁcally requesting the records be provided in a Modernized e-File (“MeF”) format. The formats speciﬁed on the Form 4506-A (“raw” or “alchemy” format) will NOT satisfy this request. All of the speciﬁed Form 990s being requested are ﬁled electronically in MeF format and I am speciﬁcally requesting machine-readable data in the MeF format. I will consider any other machinereadable format, such as CSV (comma separated value) as being responsive to this request.
Printed copies, or non-machine readable PDFs, .docs, etc. will not be considered responsive.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
A fix is required to perfect the request. The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.
A letter stating that a fix is required.
