They are a non-profit but they are not a 501c3. The short story is that State of Oregon considers them a public benefit corporatiot, but the IRS still requires them to pay taxes like any normal corporation.
As a result their records are avaialble to anyone who calls up the Oregon Secretary of State's office or the Oregon DOJ's Charitable Services Division.
If you do either you will find that they have not paid their taxes or filed any forms since 2002. You will also find that legally the organization no longer exists as it has been "dissolved" by the state of Oregon. Most of this can be resolved with a few checks and forms, but it does need to be taken care of.
