Starting a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and governing a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization are flip sides of the same coin. Steps you take in forming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation affect how your organization must operate in the future. Steps you take in the governance and operation of your 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation affect your ability to maintain your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the IRS on an ongoing basis.
Come to this class to learn how to start a Missouri nonprofit corporation that will seek to obtain 501(c)(3) tax exempt status from the IRS. In addition, this class will also cover good governance policies, strategies, and requirements that will allow your organization to maintain its 501(c)(3) tax exempt status on an ongoing basis once you are up and running.
This is an intensive 8-hour class that will focus on practical information and resources like forms to use, websites to access, governmental offices to contact or be aware of, and a checklist of steps to take.
