To be fair, when I was looking through 501 (C) 3, their definition is a teeny bit more specific. They do specify an intent of promoting cultural, educational, or literary ends. Of course, the two questions it leaves behind is:

1) What defines cultural, educational, or literary
2) How can you tell if your organization actually advances those goals.



What I'm saying above is that it looks like Drum thinks that definition of charity is too broad. The question isn't what the legal definition of charity is (because really, any theater probably advances literary ad cultural ends) the question is what does he think it should be? It sounds like he thinks a charity means "concretely helps the disadvantaged in a material/utilitarian way," in which case, no most arts orgs don't do that.
