Leave your 501(c)3 Formation

to the experts

Let us help you select the nonprofit package that's right for you - then we'll prepare and submit your State & IRS filings and provide a support package to make running your nonprofit easy!


First, let's simplify the 501(c)3 process.

This page is designed to help you understand our process and choose the 501(c)3 Formation Package that's right for you. We'll list our services, explain our three-step process, and show you what's included.


Every 501(c)3 package Starts with ALL of the Basic Components you need.

Unlike many other "Business Services" companies who don't specialize in nonprofits, our formation packages include EVERYTHING you need.

Each of our 501(c)3 Formation packages starts with five fundamental components: 
  • Articles of Incorporation, filed in your State 
  • Obtaining your EIN (Tax ID Number)
  • Your 501(c)3 Application, including all schedules as needed
  • Bylaws as well as all other required policies and addenda 
  • Our "Corporate Governance" Package
See "What's Included", outlined in detail below.


Our Express Package is for organizations that do not have reliable, large funding sources. Our Enterprise Package is for organizations expecting to raise more than $50,000 per year. Our Ultimate Package is the same as Enterprise, but comes with additional support and 2 years compliance filings included.

Below, you will choose the package option that is best for you based upon the scope and activities of YOUR nonprofit, so your journey can be successful and hassle-free!

Now, choose which package below is right for your organization


There are two paths to IRS 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Status:

  • Choose "Express" if you are like most new nonprofits, starting with moderate revenues of LESS than $50,000 per calendar year in your early startup phase.
  • Choose "Enterprise" or "Ultimate" if you are confident you will raise MORE than $50,000 per year, or if you are starting a school, church, or hospital.

Chances are, if you have paid staff, rent a space, or a significant funding source you’ll break above $50,000, but most organizations remain below it in the first three years.

Many customers ask, “What if we raise more or less than $50,000?”

Don’t worry! The IRS relies on a "scouts' honor" system here - there is no penalty for actual revenues or expenses being different than what you estimate. You will simply report the amount raised to the IRS in May of the following year.
