Your Roadmap To Nonprofit Exemption


Starting a nonprofit organization is exciting, but it is like starting a business and that is why this course is taught by applying entrepreneurial concepts. When you decide to launch I want you to be informed and confident that you have all the information you need to make decisions about the service you will provide to your community.

Many people teach "How To Start" but I want to dive in a little deeper, show you what the paperwork is all about, how it will affect you and benefit you and address some of the components of running a nonprofit. This will give you insight on what to do after you "Start" so that you be be sustainable and around to help your community for a long time.

Who should take this course? Nonprofit start-ups, community organizers and those needing an understanding of how nonprofits are organized and how they operate.

The course answers the following nonprofit questions in seven modules:

  • In depth step by step explanation on organizational forms required for exemption
  • Basic Laws that govern the nonprofits
  • In depth step by step explanation on the most common exempt applications
  • Reporting requirements for nonprofits.
  • Visual Guidance on all forms
  • Bonus consultation

I'm looking forward to seeing you in class!

Can I ask you questions directly regarding my nonprofit idea?
If you have an idea it is best to start the course first. We all have ideas and they really have to be implemented or tested before you really know if it will work. This course is a good place to test your idea. When Im doing a grant writing project for my clients I always say:"give me something to write about" Donors fund what you are doing, not what you are thinking about. You need to be able to be articulate about things you have done, not about what you are going to do. I recommend Pat Flynn's book, "Will It fly?," while you are taking this course. It's a good guide for testing your ideas.
