How does a nonprofit qualify for grants and tax-deductible donations?

Nonprofits that qualify under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC become exempt from paying federal income taxes. This qualification is also necessary to receive tax-deductible donations and many grants. Although donations received prior to the nonprofit qualifying for tax-exempt status are not tax deductible, they become retroactively deductible once the nonprofit qualifies.
