    Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Reality

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    I am author of the Do Your Own Nonprofit 51-book state series and Nonprofit Touchdown: Winning the 501c3 Game Against IRS. Also founder of Pasture Valley Children Missions and Owner of Chalfant Eckert Publishing, a traditional publisher with hybrid qualities allowing authors to keep their rights and royalties while enjoying world-class publishing services. I can take your idea for a nonprofit organization, even if it is only an idea, and turn it into a reality quickly. The paperwork and process are intimidating, but not to me. Let me help you get it finished so you can get to the mission you are on to make the world a better place! I put my rates in at $50 an hour. For new U.S. nonprofits less than 27 months old with annual revenue this minute of less than $50,000 and assets less than $250,000, that hourly rate translates to 2 hours total for the state and federal paperwork. The exception is for schools, hospitals, churches. That paperwork is much more involved and will require a closer look and a conversation to come up with what is fair and gets the job done. In any case, I am fair, reasonable, know what I am doing, don't waste my time or yours, and provide quality work. Are you are writer? Want to know your actual publishing potential? Need a ghostwriter, content or developmental editor, copy editor or proofreader, publicist? Chalfant Eckert Publishing has them all at a fair price for GREAT work. Some of our authors have been publicized into Best Seller status and have made appearances on national syndicated talk shows. We are good at what we do, we have to be. I own the company and I won't settle for anything less! LOTS of references available upon request for nonprofit services and publishing, including attorneys. What are you waiting for? It is time to get started!

    Pro Wordsmith, Perfectionist Proofreader, Marketing Maven

    United States - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 2

    With a Masters degree in English Composition (specialization in professional writing and linguistics) and an Interdisciplinary BA in English, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship, I get words. I've worked as a professional proofreader for a division of Random House, taught college freshmen how to write, published academic articles, presented at national and international conferences, managed a local venture fund (evaluating and funding tech startups), and now primarily do online & print marketing for small businesses, copy edit a variety of projects (academic and professional), and coach business owners who are growing business while having a life. This multitude of experience gives me a holistic view of professional writing and all that it can entail. Whether you need a "hand-holder," proofreader, editor, marketing content advisor, native-English point of view (and one who understands the linguistics of many other languages), or someone to craft a well-written, polished piece of writing for you, I can probably help!
