    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!

    Work with me as your online PA! My years of experience in a wide variety of businesses & sectors have taught me how to cope with the pressure of high output, busy roles with calmness and a cool head, a friendly, human and communicative approach to working relationships and a determination to get the job done well. Roles with variety are ones in which I have always excelled; in particular the challenge of delivering a high quality service, to a deadline. Over the last 7 years I have worked my way up from entry level office roles on corporate receptions, gaining further experience as PA/Magazine Assistant, being promoted to Acting Publishing Manager roles in a Media & Publishing company; taking on some varying temporary roles in team support and administration along the way, including audiotyping for a law firm, to my recent role as Executive Assistant to the CEO & Chairman of a public listed Indonesian mining company, floating on the London Stock Exchange. During these years of progression I acquired solid, all-round administrative experience, in a variety of settings. From overseeing budgets, proofing and editing key documents with accuracy and attention to detail, organising small-medium scale business events, co-ordinating designers and temporary employees to having an influence in company branding and marketing. Furthermore, my role as Executive Assistant saw me liaising with high profile individuals such as Ambassadors, political figures, peers & knights of the realm and high net worth individuals. I now look to further my career and experience in a variety of areas, offering my services remotely on-line as an assistant, project manager/coordinator or administrator, as required.

I have experienced her work with two of my books. Her diligence is what makes her stand out above the rest. She makes sure that she does what she says when it comes to time and additional reviews. I would definitely recommend Rachel without question because it is hard to find an editor who is as thorough as her. When your final review comes back there are never any mishaps.
