Are you or your family in need?

Published: Friday, 28 November 2014

In today's economy, there are a lot of individuals and families in need. The wealth and glory days of the 80's are over, and we find ourselves in financial distress or worse - in financial ruin. People who have worked hard all their lives and done everything right are losing their jobs, their homes and more. 

Unfortunately, this atmosphere of need breeds unscrupulous individuals who make their income by preying on those of us in need. Infomercials and books have started to appear, promising individuals and families in need "free" grants to help a variety of problems...like paying off bills, buying a car, paying off debt, buying a home or more. Bad news folks - there is no such thing.

We're a Nonprofit Corporation - does that mean we're a 501(c)(3) and Tax-exempt?

Published: Sunday, 15 November 2015

Nonprofit organization setup

The short answer: NO! Not even close.

Unfortunately, a lot of people contact us saying they completed their own nonprofit incorporation, and now they're ready to apply for grant funding. The truth is all they are is a nonprofit corporation. They are NOT tax-exempt. (And that begs the question: did they incorporate properly? Did they include all the IRS provisions? In most cases they have not - but that's a subject for another article!)

When one incorporates as a nonprofit organization, the corporation is now a legal entity. Your articles and by-laws act as the guidelines for running your "nonprofit business." But obtaining nonprofit corporate status from your state does not automatically carry over to the federal government, and the Feds are the only ones who can approve you for that much sought-after 501(c)(3) status!

"Nonprofit" is really a misnomer, really. A 501(c)(3), while it is in most cases a nonprofit corporation, should really be referred to as a "tax-exempt" corporation or organization. Meaning as long as the funds you raise are done so with your stated purposes in mind and used for those purposes, those funds will not be taxed.

We don't spend a lot of money, advertising our services on television or online. In fact, most of our clients come to us by word-of-mouth.

Why is that good for you? Well, because we don't spend a lot of money on advertising, we can keep our costs low. And we pass on our savings to our clients!

Also -- we all know a HUGE advertising budget does not always mean that you, as the client, are going to get better service. It just means you've heard of the "big name" company. It also doesn't mean you're going to pay less either. In fact, by the time the other "big name" company is done adding service, after service, after service -- you'll end up spending more! Yes - seriously.

We charge you a flat rate. Period. You know up front what our charges are, and that's all you pay. ;-)

Important: Before you hire a company to help you setup your nonprofit organization and nonprofit incorporation, be sure to check them out first.
