For most groups, all they need to do is file a 990 electronic postcard. It's simple, simple, simple -- so simple that I've done it for Youth Journalism International.
If you know someone connected to any of these groups, tell them about it!

Update at 8:40 a.m. --
Just called the folks who run Bristol Youth Lacrosse to get their reaction. Not surprisingly, the woman I spoke with had no idea a form was due. Hopefully, that'll get done right away.
I don't know about the others, though. If you do, tell them! I'd hate to see active nonprofits have to go back to square one with the IRS. They have more important work to do.
