    Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Reality

    United States - Last active: 3 days 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!

    Spanish/English Translator & Financial Analyst

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am a diligent, dependable, self-starter with significant bilingual experience in the field of business! I am new to Odesk, but definitely not new to translating, business, or freelancing! I just returned from a year of living and working in the Dominican Republic as a financial analyst for a Dominican organization. The position required me to interpret and translate for coworkers, customers, and visitors. Previously, I worked full-time in the U.S. as a Spanish-English Consultant for a data entry project commissioned by the Puerto Rican Government. Before that, I worked as an assistant accountant in Panama City, Panama, and was again often asked to provide translation and interpreting help for coworkers. In addition, I have been asked to interpret and translate for events, including the Marketplace Revolution in Chicago, IL November 2012--and during a mission trip in rural Panama during July 2011.
