I'll jump in here because I know the process of an IRS audit. **IF** the IRS
decides that we needed to be audited, they would check anywhere they think they
may find information. However, the email lists would **most likely** be seen as
a communication tool for anyone who is in the group. Any communication tool
would be checked for stuff like fund raising. However, they will also see that,
in the cases other than the fund raising for the SCA, the people are simply
announcing to their friends that there is a fund raising going on for a certain
person. Most likely they would not see that as fund raising for the SCA, they
would see it as fund raising for a person in the group being announced on an SCA
list so the maximum number of people could be reached.
That said, it's probably a better idea to do any fund raising for people, rather
than the SCA, on Facebook, where the groups are not official groups.

Is the IRS so "un busy" that they're going to search the email list
archives, find a posting about trying to help out a member in need, or
remove stumps, or one of us selling a trailer that SCA Corporate is at
I somehow think not.
