You are in the right place if you've asked yourself questions like...
Should I start a nonprofit or a for-profit? …and why?
As the founder can I be paid a salary?
Can my family member be on the board?
I don’t understand what these IRS forms are asking for, can you help?
Do nonprofits pay any taxes?
I already started an LLC but maybe I should change to nonprofit?
I have more questions than fit on this list!
Hear the K9s From Carrie startup story
Bonnie (founder of K9s From Carrie) came in with a lot of the same questions you have. We worked together to answer all her questions and start a small nonprofit. K9s From Carrie is now a 501(c)(3) charity that is thriving, holding several successful fundraisers each year, and making a big difference in the lives of the people (and puppies) they work with.
In Their Words...
“We would not be where we are at if not for Jess. She is professional, knowledgeable and personable. She kept us going in the right direction. Jess is able to educate her customers, which helps us make better decisions. Our nonprofit would not be where it is today if we didn’t have the help of Jess and her firm. She is always available when we hit a road block. She has taught us numerous different things through the process of getting things off the ground. We still use her when something comes as we have a great amount of trust in her!” – Bonnie Gallagher, Founder, K9s From Carrie
