Start Your Nonprofit

You may have been thinking lately that even though it’s a new year, there really hasn’t been anything new about it. You’re still doing the same things as last year, or still catching up from last month because of the holidays. 

There’s a popular meme spreading around social media now that states, “My New Year Officially Begins February 1st.” And while it’s meant to be funny, it can actually be a legit statement - just because they’re called “New Year’s Resolutions,” doesn’t mean they have to happen at the start of the year. You can change things for yourself at any time of year.

So let’s say this is the year you want to start your nonprofit, but you’re already falling a month behind. With everything it takes to build a nonprofit, you might as well try again next year, right? Wrong. After researching what’s needed for a nonprofit, you can basically break it down into three major goals.

Goal 1 - Get Started
You already have a vision of how and why your organization operates. You have friendly supporters and a small group of like-minded advisors providing direction similar to a board. Get with these people and write-up the mission statement for your nonprofit. It should detail the work your organization does and why it’s important, and encompass the basics of your board of directors like first principles, key duties, accountability, etc.

Your statement needs to be as complete as possible - not a task done very quickly. You could allow yourself from the first of January to the last day of April to finish. You may not need the entire four months, but you’ll still have ample time if you get started late.

Goal 2 - State Incorporation
Your organization will need to be created within the your state’s laws - these are essentially the same laws and regulations that apply to any business operation; however, specific terms and conditions could differently affect your nonprofit, which could cause delays. Like creating the mission statement, this isn’t a job completed overnight. From May to the end of August, two months can be for finishing all the paperwork, while the other two are for processing. Or you could personally allocate the division of time based on your specific situation.

Goal 3 - Apply for Exemption Status
The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) allows corporations with specific purposes to apply for tax-exempt status. If approved, these corporations typically become recognized as Section 501(c)(3) organizations. You’ll need to file Form 1023, but to properly complete the form, you need to have the first two goals accomplished.

The last four months of the year should be more than enough time to have your exemption application filed and processed. Before filing, you’ll need to already have the following:
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Organizing Document (Article of Incorporation, Trust Agreement, or Articles of Association, Constitution, Bylaws or Other Similar Organizing Documents
  • Section 501(c)(3) Purpose and Dissolution Clause Verification (Included in Organizing Document)
  • Form 2848, Authorized Representative Verification (if applicable)
  • Form 8821, Tax Information Authorization

Keep in mind that these estimated time periods are to coincide with a fictional resolution of starting a nonprofit within a year - depending on your state requirements, or how long it takes your tax professional to handle your forms, it could take a much longer time than depicted in this scenario.

Getting your nonprofit recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization is only half the battle - the rest is maintaining your status. Let us help you get your required 990 forms transmitted to the IRS. With ExpressTaxExempt, our simple “Q&A” format allows you to successfully complete your tax return by answering interview-style questions - no photocopies or blank PDFs of complicated IRS forms here.

The Volunteer Experience

For many nonprofit organizations, volunteers are an essential part of the day-to-day operations. In some ways, volunteers can prove to be just as vital as donors, if not more. You may have the resources to offer a service, but volunteers are your means of properly executing that service. Whether your nonprofit is small or large, any exempt organization can benefit from having volunteers. But are your volunteers benefiting from your organization?

Do your volunteers know what to do once they arrive to help? Are they showing up during a set schedule, or are they allowed to come and go? Do they regularly feel that there’s nothing to do, or are they unsure what to work on next? The experience your volunteers have with your organization can greatly impact future volunteering, monetary support, and even your nonprofit’s reputation.

Here are a few ways you can easily enhance the experience of your organization’s volunteers:

Organization Website
It all starts by getting volunteer information to those who are interested. As soon as a viewer enters your web page, they should be able to get that information effortlessly. Your volunteer registration form should ask the following information:
  • Contact name/info
  • Reason for volunteering
  • Any physical constraints
  • Education or special training
  • Professional/volunteer experience
  • Personal interest or hobbies

What may seem like extraneous information will actually help you give volunteers tasks based on their set of skills. When the volunteer is excited with what they’re doing, it’s more likely they’ll continue with their support. But signing up isn’t the only important thing. Make sure your website displays volunteering impact, available opportunities, coordinator contact info, guidelines, and release forms. Videos, photos, or testimonials from previous volunteers would be a nice touch as well.

Schedule, Communicate, & Prepare
After your volunteer has registered, communicate with them on a regular basis. They should know where to be, what to bring, and what to expect. You can personally ensure that your volunteers understand the guidelines, know their schedules, and are aware of their duties and responsibilities.

Volunteer Day (V-Day)
The most critical part of the entire experience - this should be no different than the first day of a new employee, board member, or important donor. Here a some suggested guidelines:
  • Provide distinct instruction and expectation before volunteers arrive
  • Have a leadership member greet volunteers and escort them to the volunteering area (room, section, hub, etc.)
  • Have the volunteer coordinator share details of the organization - including the need for volunteers
  • Demonstrate what volunteers will be doing over the course of their scheduled time
  • Let volunteers work
  • Allow the necessary work breaks
  • Take a photo or video of volunteers working
  • Allow the volunteers to mitigate back in the volunteer area
  • Inquire about today’s experience, thank volunteers for their time, and let them leave

Recognition - The Follow-Up
Within 24 hours, you should follow up with your volunteers with either a “Thank You” call or email. Any photos or videos can be posted on social media along with public acknowledgement of the group and volunteer support. Even if you already asked, you may still want to inquire about their experience. Sending electronic surveys to your volunteers can provide feedback or insight.

Follow-ups can also be used to request donations. Studies have shown that volunteers give ten times more in donations than non-volunteers - a reason why your volunteer experience should be top-notch to begin with. Any volunteering program your organization has in place should be as crucial as bringing in new donors. Not only does it reflect upon your organization’s reputation, but those volunteers could become your next major donors. And while you’re focused on that, let us make filing your tax-exempt returns as easy as possible.

With ExpressTaxExempt, our built-in audit check scans your information entered for any possible errors that could cause a rejection - so you can transmit an accurate form the first time around. If your 990 form is still rejected, you can make corrections and re-transmit it at no extra charge.

Our live technical support team in Rock Hill, South Carolina is available for any questions or assistance with e-filing our tax-exempt forms.

Nonprofit Showcase (Halfway There Rescue)

As there is a need to help our fellow man, there is also an urgency to help the animals that coexist with us on this beautiful planet. While all animals on Earth are important indeed, it’s the companion animals that the majority of people interact or have had experience with. Known also as pets, these animals - such as dogs or cats - can provide physical and emotional benefits like daily exercise and social interaction.

In the Charlotte, North Carolina area, there are dogs and cats, within overcrowded shelters, longing for the love from a happy, permanent home. Halfway There Rescue has embodied that situation and made it their mission to rescue, foster, transport, and provide homes for neglected companion animals.

Founded by Rock Hill’s own dog rescue enthusiast, Sarah Lewis, Halfway There Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is operated entirely through the resounding efforts of volunteers. Since February 2012, they have helped nearly 2,000 dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens find happy, loving homes - all with no paid staff or owned facilities.

Halfway There Rescue serves both states of the Carolinas; their primary outreach is within Mecklenburg, York, Lancaster, and Chester counties. The organization has established direct relationships with shelters and animal control centers to bring in dogs and cats before euthanization. In rare situations, Halfway There Rescue may obtain owner surrenders; however, work is typically done through shelter systems.

“Adoption is the loving option,” and the awesome volunteers of Halfway There Rescue make it possible for the Carolinas to take home these adorable, loving creatures as one of their own. Through its exemplary efforts and humane contributions, Halfway There Rescue shines as our nonprofit showcase of the month.

Information about how you can volunteer or adopt can be found on the Halfway There Rescue website.

Nonprofits can be geared towards humans or animals - either way ExpressTaxExempt has your exempt organization covered with tax-exempt federal filings required by the IRS. We offer simple solutions to e-file your 990 form quickly, accurately, and securely. You won’t even have to leave your furry companion to sit in front of a computer - download our FREE mobile app to transmit a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) or Extension Form 8868 wherever you and your companion may be.

Boost Fundraising Through Crowdfunding

As the future of crowdfunding is becoming more promising, there are many nonprofits and charities that are realizing the potential of incorporating crowdfunding within their fundraising efforts. To keep it short and sweet, crowdfunding uses an online platform in which anyone can easily contribute a donation with just a few clicks of the mouse. With some sites, you can even set donation levels, give prizes at certain amounts, and create teams.

When used properly crowdfunding can produce revenue greater than traditional fundraising means. But it’s not as simple as creating a page and then reaping the rewards - nothing is ever that easy. For your fundraiser to be successful through crowdfunding, there is a level of effort required to get your campaign seen and heard. And with these three steps, you can build a solid campaign or save an existing one.

Step 1 - Set Clear Goals
Keep in mind - this isn’t a get rich quick scheme, or get funds rather. Hundreds of thousands of dollars aren’t going to miraculously fall into your organization simply because you kicked-off a crowdfunder. And while you’re probably thinking “It’s possible,” the point is that asking for “hundreds of thousands of dollars” won’t yield favorable results.

The best outcomes are going to come from setting a reasonable amount to reach, a clear deadline to reach that amount, and stating how the money will be used. Keep your expectations grounded, and your goals realistic. Worst case scenario - you raise much more funds than you thought you would because the goal was set low.

Step 2 - Nurture Your Campaign
This cannot be stressed enough; you can’t just create your crowdfunding event and then casually go about your business… This fundraiser is your business! Get the word, and the link, out to your donors, to your volunteers, to everyone. In hindsight, all of your regular contributors should know about your campaign weeks before it goes live so they can initiate donations.

A little notice here and there isn’t going to do too well. Get creative on how you get the word to others. The donation page is already created, so what are 101 ways you can share a URL link to people? For some helpful and easy tips to promote your campaign, check out our blog:
Promote Holiday Giving

Step 3 - Use Social Media
It should come as no surprise that social media plays a part in the marketing or promoting of anything. If big name businesses and Fortune 500 companies are using it, then why should you shun away from it? Crowdfunding and social media are like two sides of the same coin.

Create a plan to engage with your followers on a regular basis, or organize online contests with a prize to get people donating. Studies have shown that Facebook can increase crowdfunding donations by 350 percent - how’s that for some serious motivation?

Crowdfunding can work as a great alternative to traditional fundraising, if you know what you’re doing. And with those significant donations pouring in, you have to report it all come tax season. That’s where we make it easy for you; ExpressTaxExempt offers the most simplistic way to report contributions from fundraising events with your Form 990. Not only that - it will automatically subtract any expenses entered from your event and factor the net income into your overall, total revenue.

Learn step-by-step how to report fundraising events with ExpressTaxExempt.

We’re available at (704) 839-2321, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST, or email us anytime from anywhere at support@expresstaxexempt.com.

5 Stages of Exempt Organizations

From conception to execution, it’s a beautiful sight to behold all of your efforts coming together to establish a nonprofit or a charity organization. And once your organization meets the requirements of Internal Revenue Code section 501(a), it can become exempt from federal income taxation.

Becoming tax-exempt doesn’t happen overnight and maintaining your exemption status takes even more dedication and a thorough understanding of IRS compliance - enough that it may detract from your organizational duties. Don’t let that deter you from succeeding with your organization. You can find numerous online sources that can detail running an exempt organization and keeping up with your exempt filings.

Over the course of operating your exempt organization, you’ll get familiar with the intersecting points where you are responsible for tasks mandated by the IRS, or even the state. These points, or stages, are also referred to as the life cycle of an exempt organization.

Stage 1 - Starting Out
There are a number of things you need to have accomplished before you can even dream about being tax-exempt. Your organization has to be created under state law, an Employer Identification Number (EIN) must be issued, and your appropriate federal tax classification must also be determined.

See how to forge your beginning with our blog:
Becoming a Nonprofit or Tax-Exempt Organization

Stage 2 - Applying for Exemption
To obtain recognition of exemption from federal income tax, you are required to file Form 1023; The IRS Form 1023 is categorized as the Application for Recognition of Exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Not as simple as you may think - before you even begin, you must have these items:
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Organizing Document (Article of Incorporation, Trust Agreement, or Articles of Association, Constitution, Bylaws or Other Similar Organizing Documents
  • Section 501(c)(3) Purpose and Dissolution Clause Verification (Included in Organizing Document)
  • Form 2848, Authorized Representative Verification (if applicable)
  • Form 8821, Tax Information Authorization

More information about the Section 501(c)(3) application can be found here:
A Form 1023 Thanksgiving

Stage 3 - Required Filings
Getting your exemption status is one thing, maintaining your exemption status is another. You are required to file your tax-exempt returns with the IRS each year.
  • Form 990-N (e-Postcard) - Exempt organizations with less than $50,000 in gross receipts
  • Form 990-EZ - Exempt organizations with less than $200,000 in gross receipts, and total assets less than $500,000
  • Form 990 (Long) - Exempt organizations with gross receipts greater than or equal to $200,000, or total assets greater than or equal to $500,000

You can learn about the 990 series tax forms from another one of our insightful blogs:
ExpressTaxExempt - #1 for Tax-Exempt 990 Forms

Stage 4 - Ongoing Compliance
There are basic guidelines of governance that should be instilled your organization - even if it’s operated differently from the next. You have disclosure requirements, employment taxes, and ways to avoid risking, or worse - losing, your exempt status. And it’s been proven how governance guidelines can link to how tax compliant your organization is.
Check on how compliant your governance practice could be with our blog:
Compliant or Not Compliant

Stage 5 - Significant Events
These could be your organization’s “be all, end all” moments, and can include audits, private letter rulings, and termination procedures. Nothing is meant to last too long - but if you’re on top of your financial responsibilities and IRS compliance, these events should be few and far in-between.

Tales from the Nonprofit

There’s nothing better than a good story - except maybe food and a good story. But even without the food, a story has it’s own worth. A great story can stir emotions, create a call to action, or simply entertain. For nonprofits and charities, a story can inspire to give. Of course we don’t mean just any story, but a story of the work done by your organization that has influenced or helped others within the community.

As much work as your organization accomplishes, there’s probably a story or fascinating experience for every staff member or volunteer. Ironically, the most challenging part of sharing these stories is first finding them. Here are some ways to boost your organization’s storytelling to share with donors.

Be Specific
  • You need to know exactly what kind of story you’re looking to share from your programs - broadly asking for any story will give you just that. And your staff member or volunteer may have numerous unique experiences within the nonprofit per day. Help them select the best choice by requesting for a specific story.

Stories at Staff Meetings
  • Can’t make rounds to everyone? Take a few minutes during regular staff meetings and ask your members to share a special, impressionable, or surprising moment from the previous week. The entire story doesn’t have to be told at that very moment - just a minute or two. You can meet up with the member later to gather details. This will allow you to get great stories straight from the source rather than spending the day randomly going from person to person.

Strategic Listening
  • Another way to find great stories is to simply listen to what is going on around you. And no, we don’t mean eavesdropping, or what we affectionately refer to in our office as “ear hustling,” but instead to pay close attention to the many conversations you have with your staff and volunteers each day. Listen well and strategically ask questions that reveal further information.

Story Submission
  • Maybe the problem isn’t coming up with stories, but rather what to do with them. With so much to do, your staff can’t possibly drop everything to express a worthy experience. A paper or online form can allow anyone to quickly submit their story. You can find online resources about creating forms.

Show Them the Way
  • A great way to get others to openly express themselves is for you to openly express yourself. Share your own stories of the donors you speak with, the people you’ve helped, or any thoughtful, impressionable moments. Not only does it add value to the relationships of those working around you, but it also establishes connections to those who graciously fund your programs.

Getting your organization’s message and efforts known by the masses is a team effort, but sharing more stories can lead to more donations, allowing you to make even more of an impact in our world.

So while your nonprofit or charity is out changing the world, let us help you with our tax-exempt returns and extension forms made easy. With ExpressTaxExempt, you can e-file your 990 forms and extensions faster and more accurately than with paper filing. With our easy, online interview process, we lead you from start to finish with helpful prompts and step-by-step instructions to e-file your annual tax-exempt return.

ExpressTaxExempt - #1 for Tax-Exempt 990 Forms

The new year brings in new beginnings, and in the wonderful world of taxes, a brand new calendar tax year along with a new set of deadlines. Unlike other tax due dates that happen relatively early in the year, nonprofits, charities, and other exempt organizations have a bit of breathing room. 

But don’t slack - the May 15 deadline can quickly creep up on you. Whether you’re a certified public accountant (CPA) filing for multiple organizations, or a lone, primary officer responsible for your exemption status, ExpressTaxExempt is your #1 online solution for everything tax-exempt and supports all the forms you need.

Form 990-N (e-Postcard)
Who is Eligible to File: You must e-file a Form 990-N (e-Postcard) if your organization typically has gross receipts of less than $50,000 per year. The exception to the rule only applies to organizations that are in group returns; churches and their integrated auxiliaries, conventions, or associations of churches, or organizations that need to file a different return.

About the Form: The Form 990-N (e-Postcard) has to be done online - there’s no paper form. There also aren’t any schedules to complete, and you can’t file an extension for it. You’ll need the required eight pieces of information to successfully e-file Form 990-N (e-Postcard):
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
  • Tax Year
  • Legal Name & Address
  • Different Names Used By The Organization, if applicable
  • Website, if applicable
  • Name & Address Of A Principal Officer
  • Confirmation Of Gross Receipts Of $50,000 Or Less
  • A Statement That The Organization Is Going Out Of Business, if applicable

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt: You can e-file your Form 990-N (e-Postcard) for FREE for the current 2015 tax year, and you can also e-file for 2014 and 2013 for $9.90 per return!

Form 990-EZ
Who is Eligible to File: A Form 990-EZ is required from organizations with gross receipts over $50,000, but less $200,000 and total assets less than $500,000.

About the Form: The essential part of the Form 990-EZ lies within its Schedules. Each Schedule is meant to provide the IRS with information regarding specific activities within your exempt organization. You may not have to file every Schedule for your organization.

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt: You can e-file your Form 990-EZ for the current 2015 tax year, 2014, and 2013 starting at $99.95 per return!

Form 990 (Long)
Who is Eligible to File: Filing a Form 990 (Long) means that your organization has gross receipts that are greater than $200,000 and total assets greater than $500,000.

About the Form: Much like the Form 990-EZ, the bulk of Form 990 (Long) also comes from the number of Schedules that need to be filed along with it. Each exempt organization is unique, and you might not have to file as many Schedules as the next one.

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt: You can e-file your Form 990 (Long) for the current 2015 tax year and also for the 2014 tax year starting at $299.95 per return!

Extension Form 8868
Who is Eligible to File: If you need to extend the deadline for filing either a Form 990 (Long) or Form 990-EZ, you can e-file a Form 8868, Application for Extension of Time to File an Exempt Organization Return.

About the Form: Extension Form 8868 is broken down into two parts. With Part I, you can e-file for an automatic 3-month extension, and with Part II, you can e-file for an additional, non-automatic 3-month extension.

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt: You can e-file your Extension Form 8868 for the current 2015 tax year and the 2014 tax year for $14.95 per return!

Form 1023 (Coming Soon)
About the Form: The section 501(c)(3) application, known as Form 1023, is needed from any organization that is applying for exempt recognition from federal income tax. Once your organization is approved, you’ll receive a written confirmation of your tax-exempt status from the IRS.

E-filing with ExpressTaxExempt: You can use our highly-rated features to fully complete a Form 1023. Once you are done, you can download your completed form directly to your computer, print it out, and mail it to the IRS.

For your exempt tax returns, no matter if you operate on a calendar or fiscal tax year, your tax deadline will always be on the 15th day of 5th month after your tax end date with the option to extend if you choose to. And with ExpressTaxExempt, you can re-transmit any rejected forms at no extra charge.

A Nonprofit New Year

It’s the start of a brand new year, and you probably have a laundry list of goals that you want to get completed, some policies you might want to change, and things that will make your nonprofit more efficient. With all the resolutions and changes you want to implement this year, the most important one is so far beyond your radar it’ll sound appalling when you first hear, but perfect once you understand it.

*trumpet fanfare* 2016 New Year’s Resolution: Do Less

You read that correct - absolutely!

Now we’re not talking about becoming lethargic (as if anyone in the nonprofit community knows of being lethargic) - to “do less” means to focus only on the most important tasks. Scratch off anything that comes across small in the grand scheme of things - a trivial meeting, a less-than-stellar grant, or a minimal event.

You may have a great idea for an event or something, or your whole staff has no problem coming up with ideas to raise money. But when the execution of these ideas falls flat, we claim lack of money, resources, or time when actually it’s the fact that everyone was spread out too thin.

If each person on your staff focused their time, energy, and resources towards the most essential things your nonprofit needs, you’ll find that the efficient means are there - just maybe not enough for an extra fundraiser, grant proposal, or a team pow-wow.
Sacrifice is the name of the game, but it can yield some amazing results. Anything that is last-minute shouldn’t even remain on your scope because if it was something essential to the life of the nonprofit, it wouldn’t be a last-minute thing to get done.

With so much to do, how can I do less?
Let’s take fundraising, for example. Every month, or however often, your organization attempts to bring in donations by having an event. As soon as one is done, resources are channeled towards the next one. Instead, let’s invest a significant amount of effort towards properly thanking those who have donated before. Why? To have them donate regularly, thus having to fundraise less.

Do you find yourself trying to score every grant that shows up? You can either put in the sufficient effort towards one large grant, or aim for many small grants that don’t require much effort, but can add up closely to a large grant.

Be progressive. You don’t have to drop many things at once. Start with just one thing to completely stop doing, and as time goes on, drop another thing if possible. “Less is more,” as the saying goes, and by focusing on the “major” goals instead of “every” goal, you’ll notice your nonprofit accomplish more of the work that matters most.

And speaking of work that matters most, don’t let yourself get too tied up filing your tax-exempt returns. Let ExpressTaxExempt help you with our exempt forms made easy. We support Form 990-N (e-Postcard), Form 990-EZ, and Form 990 (Long), which you can e-file quicker, easier, and with far less mistakes than paper filing.

Our live support professionals in Rock Hill, South Carolina are on stand-by to lend assistance at any point of your e-filing experience. For questions, concerns, or further help, give us a call at (704) 839-2321, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
