    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!

    I've written for business, creative means and everything in between.

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 3

    After he and corporate America stopped agreeing on things and started sleeping in separate beds, Bill Pursell went out for a bag of freedom fries and aims never to return. He has just now cautiously begun testing the freelance writing waters by diving in head first. Bill is almost ashamed at how little shame he has, therefore he'll write on just about any topic. He'll dabble in more traditional writing topics like travel and diddle in other writings like religion. Bill dabbles and diddles all over the spectrum. Bill Pursell is the spectrum. While living in Chicago with his girlfriend and his little garbage monster, I mean puppy, he is always on the prowl for more remunerative writing opportunities and sometimes, depending on the topic, less remunerative writing opportunities. Bill Pursell finds the word "remunerative" to be a phonetic disaster. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions, even if they aren't necessarily intended for me. And despite what you may be currently thinking, the bulk of my professional writing experience is, well, actually professional.
