You’ve got a great cause and you’re ready to take action. Wondering what to do to get your 501c3 nonprofit started legally? We’ve got you covered with our Three Step Startup Process!

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 501c3 tax exemption, and creating the corporate documents you need to get started on the right foot like bylaws.

Contact us

2. Request a consultation with a member of our team. We reply to all requests within 1 business day. Our compassionate and knowledgeable team will talk you through what to expect during the process and learn more about your mission. After the call, we’ll send you 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.

Get Nonprofit Status

3. Let us take care of the rest! As a nonprofit ourselves, we understand the legal process and requirements for nonprofits. We’ll collect the information we need from you and complete all the legal paperwork to incorporate your nonprofit in your state and get 501c3 status from the IRS. We think it shouldn’t be hard to start a nonprofit that makes a difference. Our attorneys have helped over 400 charities get started legally. We take care of the legal paperwork so you can focus on changing the world.

We knew our volunteers wouldn’t have the time or the expertise to handle all the legal requirements, or even know what they were. Charitable Allies took care of everything at a reasonable cost.

Like many volunteer-run charitable organizations, we struggled with the process of establishing a 501c3. Our board members tried to work through the paperwork for the filing ourselves, but the legalese and complicated processes were overwhelming. The process was frustrating and time-consuming. Then I reached out to Charitable Allies and they have been a Godsend. Attorney Robert Miller walked me through the process and requirements for registering a public charity organization as a tax-exempt organization with the IRS in a way that met our needs. Working with them has been a huge relief.
