Social Club

A social club is a broad term describing an organization consisting of members that have a shared interest. These clubs allow people interested in an activity or subject to congregate and interact with one another. Common examples include book clubs, movie clubs, hiking clubs, sports clubs and dance clubs.

As aforementioned, a ‘social club’ is a broad term. There is no set definition as to what the term entails. Even a group of friends that decide to meet every week to discuss their interests in anime can be considered a social club. Some clubs may have a set headquarters, while others may change location on a regular basis. Some also require members to pay a fee. 

In the United States, social clubs are tax exempt.
