The CSL is listed as "California Fund for Senior Citizens" at Code 402 on the form. The CSL is required to raise $250K/year in order to stay on the tax form and this year, it came in just $15k short but a one-time exception was granted. Please support California?s senior citizens and distribute this CSL flyer to all your distributions in an effort to raise awareness about this important need for support.
