The only thing scarier than discussing death is dealing with the IRS; at Weese Law Firm we do both on a daily basis. This probably explains why we don’t get invited to a lot of parties, but it also makes us uniquely prepared to handle the challenges that nonprofits face.
People are motivated to start a nonprofit for many reasons; regardless of their exact motivation, they want to make an impact and they can’t wait to get to work. Of course, before they can get to work they have to form their nonprofit which requires incorporation at the state level and then obtaining tax exemption from the IRS. Receiving that tax exempt letter is an amazing feeling, but the work has only just begun. Before they can accept donations, they must register with each state in which they plan to solicit or receive a donation and look into the possibility of obtaining tax exempt status at the state level. Don’t forget all of the record keeping that goes hand-in-hand with accepting donations and maintaining tax exemption status.
Is it any wonder that most nonprofits struggle to serve their mission, and over 50% do not have a succession or strategic plan?
We take our nonprofit clients from the conception phase through the implementation phase and connect them with valuable resources along the way.
