Let Us Help You Create The Non-Profit of Your Dreams!

In order to setup and maintain your tax exempt status, your organization must meet very specific expense and income classifications. The IRS determines your eligibility with the following:

A Yearly Balance Sheet

Including cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable.

9

Individual Program Expense Statements

Detailing every expense for each program, service or seminar, including things like educational mailings.

Revenue Support Schedules

Detailing charitable donations, membership fees, and investment interest.

Our non-profit services include…
