Prepare your information

1. Prepare your information. We have an article that walks you through the things you’ll need to get your nonprofit started, including a name, mission, and board members. Whether you’re looking to start a church, youth-serving organization, animal shelter, or other kind of nonprofit, our compassionate nonprofit lawyers can help you get started. We help with incorporating with your state, filing for IRS tax exemption, and creating the corporate documents you need to get started on the right foot like bylaws.

2. Contact us! We have two options. If you’d like to speak to one of our attorneys, request a consultation. If you prefer to skip the wait and apply for our help online, complete this form and submit it to us. We reply to all requests and applications within 1 business day. Once we review your application or speak to you in a consultation, we’ll send over an engagement letter and a link to pay your retainer payment. When you sign the letter and pay the retainer, we’ll be able to get started.
