Starting a Nonprofit
Starting a nonprofit can be complex and time-consuming. It involves hours spent researching, preparing, and filing paperwork. Starting a nonprofit becomes even more complex when you begin to consider registering to solicit in different states. With the advent of online fundraising, donations could come from any state, including those that your new nonprofit may not be registered in. Accepting these donations could trigger a requirement for your nonprofit to register in that state.
Well-intentioned people who want to make a difference by starting a nonprofit could easily become overwhelmed by state and IRS requirements. Our job is to make the process easy for you so that you can concentrate on making a difference.
How We Help You Start Your Nonprofit
If you have not already done so, we complete your articles of incorporation and upon your approval, we file it with the state.
Next, we follow IRS provisions to draft bylaws to govern the board of directors of your nonprofit organization.
Following IRS guidelines, we create a conflict of interest policy that applies to your board of directors.
We then obtain a Federal Employer Identification Number from the IRS on your behalf.
