I've wondered this for a while. One of the school's founders, Shanon Brooks, has his own business giving "Face to Face with Greatness" seminars. See here. Cost to attend: anywhere from $125 to $225 per person.
This appears to be a for-profit, sole proprietership owned by Mr. Brooks (see here and search for "face to face").
George Wythe University, a non-profit, actively promotes these seminars. Notice that the seminar dates on GWU's site are exactly the same as the dates on Brooks's site. These are the same seminars.
My question for anyone out there with tax knowledge is this:
Is the George Wythe Foundation, dba George Wythe University, violating any part of its non-profit charter by using its tax-free resources to promote the for-profit ventures of one of its board members?
Don't forget the earlier discussion on the school possibly using restricted assets meant for Monticello to fund other school programs. If true, that is a serious issue as well.
