    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!

    Transcriber and Translater, Creative Writer, Screenwriter

    Kenya - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am glad that you are reading my profile, thank you. Below is a self-description of my life’s experience and abilities. I look forward to your finding me to be the kind of person you would like to hire. The education system in my country Kenya has English as the official teaching and examining language in all subjects except in the national language, Swahili. Therefore, those of us who have more than a passing interest in the written word get to be quite good in English. For four of the six years of my high school, I went to a school ran by Catholic missionaries where the vast majority of teachers were of British descend. Before the internet, books and magazines were my constant companions; I am an avid reader and a movie buff. I discovered I could write while still in school; I found that I have a way with words and can come up with some impressive turns of phrase. My vivid imagination, fueled by watching a great number of movies, comes into play when am screenwriting. I am self-taught in this and I know that a screenplay’s three-act structure must have well timed plot points and creative twists and turns that stir up the audiences’ emotions. I have had as my schoolteacher people from India, Scotland, Ireland, England, Canada and the USA; I have watched countless English movies from all over the world; I have inevitably developed an ear for accents, enabling me to transcribe English audios in any format required. I think of myself as an intelligent and multi-talented artistic person; a fast learner capable of adapting to new ideas and ways of doing things. Thank you for reading this far down. I hope the above shines a light on the kind of person you would be hiring. If there is anything you would like me to clarify further, or if you have any question; please ask; I am willing to take a test interview to help you decide. In seeking to be hired, my honest intention is to get your appreciation and approval of my skills. I will therefore give your assignments my undivided attention and diligence.
