To the Point

I work for a web development company that has been donating services and hosting to a new nonprofit that has not yet received its 501(c)(3) recognition. The organization’s site currently claims they have obtained this status.  My question is twofold: 1) Is there a possibility of prosecution for our company or for the organization? 2) If exempt status is not received, can we still claim an itemized donation deduction?
