Your questions answered
InstantNonprofit offers basic fundraising training & resources, 100% free upon purchase of one of our 501(c)3 Formation packages.
We also offer professional fundraising training through a long-time partner, who raises tens of millions for a broad array of causes.
Finally, we have a growing list of vetted grant writers who are available for introductions.
Many people come to us ready to start their nonprofit, hoping that they can utilize an LLC or other company entity formed inependently, or perhaps obtaining an EIN.
It’s important to note that an LLC is not compatible with a 501(c)3; if you mistakenly started an LLC for the purpose of taking a step toward starting a nonprofit, it will need to be dissolved (we can help with this).
The correct type of entity is the Nonprofit Corporate (called a Non-Stock corporation in Virginia). It's also important to note that even in cases where the correct entity type was filed, there is also required addenda (Purpose and Dissolution Clause), without which the IRS will reject your application.
If you filed a Nonprofit Corporation but failed to add the required language prior to starting with us, don't worry! We'll carefully examine your documents and file the proper amendment at no charge (not including government fees).
Also any EIN that is or was assigned to another entity at any time is NOT able to be applied to your new nonprofit - a new one must be obtained.
The BEST thing to do is NOTHING - it's usually better to start fresh with InstantNonprofit - because we do it all FOR you!
Yes. Either your nonprofit can pay you back or you can choose to write it off as a business expense on your nonprofit’s taxes.
Yes. You can build a strategic partnership with your for-profit and nonprofit, however, your nonprofit will be set up as it’s own entity and operate separately from your for-profit.
Nothing. There are no penalties for raising more than $50,000, and the IRS does not come back and make you file another application. You simply must report your revenues on the appropriate 990 tax form.
