tax exempt question Charlie Hathaway 10 Jun 1997 11:12 EST

Hi all-
I have a general question that may not belong here.
For the purposes of soliciting funds/grants from private foundations,
do municipal governments have the appropriate tax exempt status?
Is it 501(c)(3)?  Or a variation?
Thanks for all replies.
