Launch Your Nonprofit with Our 501(c)3 Services
All great movements in history started with a bit of moral outrage.
Our battle cry is, "It shouldn't be hard to do good!"
We take care of the paperwork and process, so you can focus on your mission.
We started with a simple idea - that paperwork and confusion shouldn’t stop you from making the world a better place.
When we began in 2012, starting a nonprofit organization and getting 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Status had become too complicated, expensive, and time consuming. Many nonprofit founders were forced to give up before their dream saw the light of day. We have changed that forever!
Like you, we’re taking a stand to make the world a better place - that’s why our mission is to care about YOUR mission! Our technology is simple to use, and we focus on the human touch. We understand what it takes because our team has been right where you are now. So come on - take one small step for a human (you)...one giant leap for humankind!
Our Founder's Story
A decade ago, I volunteered to start a nonprofit with a group of friends. “How hard can it be?” I asked. After submitting the application, I became morally outraged at the brain numbing process, and the 12-months-plus approval timeline.
I called the number of our faraway IRS agent - but after waiting days for a response only to miss the returned call, I decided to dial nearly 50 similar phone extensions (changing the last few numbers) in the IRS Exempt Organizations department, asking dozens of questions to learn how to get a fast approval.
I documented the process I had developed, formulated what we still call “a love letter to a bureaucrat” - the perfect 501(c)3 Application, and immediately produced consistent 30-to-60 day IRS approvals. Requests for help started coming in, and I went from “blogger” to “businessman”.
Today, with an efficient tech-enabled process, 100% IRS approval guarantee, and a staff committed to our credo that “It shouldn’t be hard to do good”, we’re the # 1 most highly rated 501(c)3 service in the niche.
When I'm not at the office, I speak and write on nonprofits and social enterprise based on my track record of starting nearly 3,000 nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations, in addition to a decade of fundraising and copywriting for myriad causes.
My Big Bet: The social enterprise founder is the superhero of this new era. As classic “norms” and institutions fall away, personal values have emerged as the basis for identity. Welcome to the convergence of cause and commerce. #LetsBuildThis
