If you anticipate bringing in less than $50,000 annually for your nonprofit’s first three years, you may be able to follow the IRS “EZ” process.  The majority of my early-stage 501(c)(3)-eligible nonprofit clients qualify, but contact me to discuss your specific situation.

    • Legal Publication Requirement
    • Publication Fees
    • EIN (Employer Identification Number) Application
    • Bylaws

    • Communication throughout the process to address all your questions and make recommendations for your needs.
