Start Or Incorporate A Non-Profit

Do you have an idea or are you already running a program that you would like to incorporate as a 501©3 non-profit?

In setting up your 501©3 nonprofit, It takes us just a few weeks to get everything in order for you and in the mail to state and federal offices. The State status will come back first. The federal ruling is averaging 6 to 9 months at this time.

We can facilitate most of this over the phone and via email. One of our consultants will meet with you briefly before you drop all the materials in the mail.

Our fee covers everything you need to incorporate at the State & Federal level. The 7 deliverables are:

  1. State Incorporation paperwork
  2. Conversion from corporation to Public Charity
  3. Secretary of State Filing
  4. Attorney General Filing
  5. Federal application for 501©3 status
  6. Creation of Articles of Incorporation
  7. Creation of Bylaws

Our fee does NOT include the required governmental application fees (currently $600 to IRS & $25 to CA Franchise Tax Board) are due at the time of mailing made out to them not us. They are sent to the IRS & the State along with the package of legal documents we created for you.

Should you decide to move forward with us handling the nonprofit incorporation, this is what we would need to get started:

  1. Our signed contract and payment of the fee
  2. Name & Address of your new Charity
  3. Full Name & SS# of the CEO
  4. A paragraph describing the History & Mission. Who do you plan to serve & how? Have you started serving them, and if so, estimated month and year when you started providing service.

After two weeks, we will need a few names, preferably as follows:

  1. Chair
  2. Secretary
  3. Treasurer
  4. Member
  5. Member

Full names & addresses. Five names seem to be very attractive to reviewing officers at State & Fed right now for some reason.
