So in order to be a 509(a)(3) supporting organization, do you have first obtain a 501(c)(3) classification? If that is the case, can you submit requests simultaneously, or do you have wait until you receive your 501(c)3 letter of determination before you can submit Form 8940 for 509(a)(3) determination?

If you are applying for 501(c)(3) exemption of a new organization, you can — and should — apply for the 509(a)(3) supporting organization at the same time.  If you already have the (c)(3) status and want to change from another public charity classification, you should submit Form 8940 and the accompanying information to change your non-private foundation status.  —Don Kramer
