The National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE) is a classification system of nonprofits developed by the National Center for Charitable Statistics, which will help you to define the core areas of activity. The NCCS also provides a table of all NTEE codes.
Item 1 of Section 1 of Form 990 provides a summary of “…the organizations mission or most significant activities.”
Part III of the 990 provides additional information. On Line 2 the filer is asked if they made any significant program changes since filing their last 990. If so they are required to fill out Schedule O. Based on Line 3 they must report similar information on operations that ceased. In Section 4 they must provide detailed information on the three largest program services.
