A Man and Website of Integrity
Integrity. A forgotten word and vanishing characteristic. But integrity and honesty is the norm for this website and Chris’ instruction, guidance and feedback.
I “happened” upon this website in late March. Diligently read and re-read the instructions. Made the maximum donation and spent two weeks cutting, pasting and writing. Sent Chris my application, received his feedback, made the necessary changes and a week later sent the revised copy for his review.
Received his approval and sent the Form with the attachments to the IRS on Monday, April 25, 2022. Received approval from the IRS on May 17th and opened my confirmation letter on May 26th.
Chris does not fabricate or exaggerate. Do what he says, the way he says, and your success is guaranteed. Chris and this website was an answer to my prayers. I am so grateful to the Lord for leading me to this site and grateful to Chris for his willingness to serve with integrity.
Wow! We just got our tax exemption determination letter in the mail today and it took less than 30 days from the moment we submitted online! Chris was sooo helpful and was our guide the whole way through this process. He is extremely kind and generous. I am so impressed with this website and we got way more than we paid for. The templates received from this website were a game changer and saved us a lot of time and energy. Thanks so much!
Thank you for your great help!
It took 5 months to get approved by IRS, which is faster than many expensive attorneys. Chris, thank you so much for your professional help!
Thanks to YOU!!
Thank you so much for the support you gave me a couple months ago. You took the time to walk me through my biggest blocks with the 1023 form… and basically, kept me SANE! And you made it possible!! We got our 501(c)(3) designation!!
With deep appreciation!!!
Exceptional Help and Service
Chris was an awesome resource. I would recommend this service to anyone looking to start a non-profit organization. I would also recommend that if you have any questions pay for an initial consult as it will save you a lot of time and energy.
The true one stop shop
Wow, where do I start? I feel so fortunate to have stumbled across this website. Once I arrived, it was the only place I had to go to find guidance and help in the application process for our 501(c)3 status.
The website is very easy to navigate. It has every resource you could possibly need. Chris is very easy to get a hold of and extremely helpful with his feedback and advice.
Our 501(c)3 has recently been approved and I know it would not have been possible without the help and guidance of Chris and this incredible website.
Take advantage of all the resources and templates, they are very helpful. He has included a great reading list as well. I highly recommend utilizing this site to its full capacity. That being said, I would also promote donating to the site to ensure it can stay up and Chris’s depth of knowledge can continued to be shared with others in need.
Keep It Simple!!!
I service the senior population in my state that have the desire to remain at home and not be placed in a Nursing Home setting.
I am truly grateful for all your help and guidance! The process was simple and your attention to detail is a testimonial that you are a MASTER of this craft!! All I know is that I live in Missouri and I consulted a contractor and her fees were $1,500, but I practically had to do it myself with all the questions she asked. Next I consulted an attorney and he wanted $5,000! I cannot say THANK YOU enough!!
I wish I would have stumbled across Chris’ page much earlier into my application process because this website is a one stop shop to getting approved. I had been researching so many websites and utilizing far too many resources which resulted in a very lengthy application. I even called several lawyers but realized their fees were too pricey. Chris helped me drastically shorten my application to keep the good stuff! I will say Chris was hard to get a hold of and I think at the time one of the phone numbers was out-dated but once I finally got hold of him, he was very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt to respond and above all, Chris provided me with the confidence and reassurance I needed to finally submit my application! Chris also encouraged me to send a letter to expedite the process. Six months later my 1023 (not the EZ form) was approved. Chris’ page is perfect for people who like to do things on their own with guidance. Do your research, read his pages thoroughly, and then seek his guidance. This page is a blessing! I am excited to see the good that will come through the help of this website!
Application for Recognition of Exemption Status (1023)
IRS 501C3 Status approved 90 days after submission. Chris Thank you for all your support and taking all my phone calls during the start of my business. You have provided TESI with excellent customer service. Your knowledge and downloadable information of nonprofit was well worth the donation. Chris was candid during the review of my IRS Form 1023 and other support. Thank you for your timely feedback which helps me keep my project goals on schedule.
Chris’ support has been awesome! Again Thank you.
Absolutely Amazing Resource
I don’t think I have enough words to express my gratitude for the critical documents this site provided. Not only were they worth the donation for the more detailed information, it saved me countless hours of trying to research and create them myself. The free downloadable book was a God send.. I used this site to start my nonprofit in October of 2020. I am back to the site to see what valuable information is available to continue to grow my organization and to ensure that I can make a difference in the world…. all while meeting IRS scrutiny.
Thank you abundantly!
Record Time for Approval
IRS 501(c)(3) status approved 20 days after filing our application on pay.gov! We received our approval letter in 28 days!
Chris is amazing! His forms and instructions were extremely helpful. His advice and guidance were outstanding.
Please support his ongoing work to help more people navigate the bureaucracy of establishing a nonprofit. I am so glad we contributed to his efforts by making a donation to his organization.
I received my letter from the IRS with the acceptance and the 501C3 determination. 🙂 I have already mailed off my application application for these state sales taxes well. Once again thanks for all your help.
We just received our determination letter for 501c3 exempt status! Thank you so much for your willingness to help those of us going through this process. From your various samples to the Budget Projection Calculator, your website is an excellent resource. Please keep providing this service.
So first things first, I haven’t thought about this website in years. I created my nonprofit in 2017, when I was a sophomore in high school. I never got to do anything with it, but I was able to successfully obtain the 501(c)(3) because of this website. I printed out all of the free pages available, and donated to receive the more difficult documents. Love it, love it, love. Thank you so much.
Recently I had a friend who was thinking of doing this for her company, and I immediately sent her to this website. This is the most comprehensive application help I have ever seen, and the fact that it is completely free is amazing. Kudos to the people who made this website, you are doing amazing work.
Thank you for all your help
I wanted to let you know that we received our tax-exempt status in May.
Thank you for all your help, Chris!
