Moms Against Poverty maintains two OFAC licenses (one General License, one Specific License) from the U.S. Department of the Treasury for humanitarian purposes and can collect tax-exempt donations to support our ongoing relief efforts and our other projects involving schools, orphanages and other humanitarian related activities in Iran.

A general license authorizes a particular type of transaction for a class of persons without the need to apply for a license.

A specific license is a written document issued by OFAC to a particular person or entity, authorizing a particular transaction in response to a written license application.
