Start a Nonprofit

As an agent of change in the world, you want to make a difference. You have passion for your cause, a mission, or a community need. My clients come to me because they want to move deeper into their calling but feel slowed down, or even blocked by lack of clarity or uncertainty of the next best steps. I help make their vision a reality–and expand their impact. 

Create a real, sustainable structure around your mission by forming

a nonprofit corporation!

How To Know If Forming A Nonprofit Corporation Is Right For You:

  • Do you want to raise tax-exempt funds to bring your dreams to life?
  • Do you want to create a structure so others can join you to expand your vision?
  • Do you want your mission to be able to continue without your leadership?
  • Do you want to protect your personal assets from liability?

…if you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, forming a nonprofit is your next best step.

I cover every aspect of the formation process for you. I ensure all the IRS requirements are satisfied, carefully complete all the necessary documents, and file the application with the IRS.
