    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!

Here are some recent testimonials that Rachel has received from her clients: Testimonial from a corporate client: “Rain Publishing is a reputable publishing company that produces a quality product that both you and your readers can be proud of. Their knowledge base, professionalism, timely process, and attention to every detail are the reasons I choose Rain Publishing every time.” - Hasani Pettiford, Founder of Couples Academy Testimonial from a client who used Rachel's writing coach services: “Rain Publishing has blessed my life!

Her motivation inspires me and no matter how long it takes for me to birth this "Diamond" I'm not giving up. The amazing thing about Rachel, is that she's not giving up either!” - Amara Russell From a client who has hired Rachel to edit all three of her books: "Rachel is a genius when it comes to editing. 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. She is the epitome of business and efficiency." -Candra Ward, Speaker and Educator
