Before you call it crazy, just know even paranormal research groups have had their 501 forms approve.
Chiefburger, that sounds like an interesting idea. But I can assure you that applying for a 501(c)(3) is an unbelievable amount of work that requires a lawyer willing to pour tons of hours into it. It's a great suggestion, but a lot more work than the group needs.
