I welcome any and all feedback and suggestions regarding Form1023.org and its content. If you are compelled to thank me for some odd reason, just click the button below and pour your heart out or better yet, consider donating a few dollars to keep this site alive for yourself and others. If you came here to read other nonprofits’ testimonials, there are hundreds of them, so browse away. I hope that this painstaking work of several years has been useful in some way, and I truly wish you the best of luck in your humanitarian endeavor.
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!
We have our 501(c)(3)
Just a thank you for your help. it worked and we have our 501(c)(3) public non-profit for education.
Very grateful for your help
We just received our reinstatement of the 501c3. Thank you very much for your expert advice and the time you took to walk us through this difficult process. We will file our 990s every year from now on and we are again very grateful for your help.
Stay away from Legalzoom
We used LegalZoom before we found your website and I’m disgusted to say that after a month of back and forth with them and taking my money, they said they couldn’t prepare our application as we didn’t qualify for the form 1023EZ. I’m almost finished with the application using your amazing documents and will send them over to you for a review. You have no idea what a godsend this site is, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I was stuck and overwhelmed suffering from "Analysis Paralysis"
I have woken up for the last 3 months with this one thing on my “to do” list that just kept rolling over and over. I made many attempts and even attended YouTube University. There are many people offering templates and assistance for ridiculous prices. But, in the end it turns out they were selling empty documents that claim they are fill in the blanks. When they say “blank” they mean blank. So much wasted time and money. In the end, I found things to make me busy and put filing my Articles of Incorporation on the back burner and walked away.
Today I woke up and told myself to face my fear and focus on filing my AOI. Once again I started clicking, cutting, and pasting. Five hours in I was feeling like giving up. I searched for a template and found FORM1023.org . I contacted customer service on FB to make sure I wasn’t wasting my money . Low and behold, Chris contacted me back and set up a Zoom right away. He was patient in my confusion. He provided all the documents with real fill in the blank and verbiage needed . He took his time to explain the steps needed . No upsell, tricks or click funnels , just transparent information.
Within minutes I was filed and incorporated! Thank you so much!
You're providing a great service!
I wanted to let you know that we just received the IRS determination letter designating Vibraphone Project Inc. as an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit. This means that we got our approval about 15 weeks after our 1023 submission to the IRS.
Thanks very much for helping us refine our application package so that we could pass muster with the IRS without their need for additional information. If that had happened we probably would have waited until the end of this year before getting approval!
Keep doing what you’re doing – you’re providing a great service!

You should be known as “the father of nonprofits”
I submitted Form 1023 on Nov 4. IRS made its determination on Nov 24. Is that record time? THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!! You should be known as “the father of nonprofits” — a moniker you should wear with pride. When the conservatory is up and running and my scholarship kids are progressing, I’ll send you pics. This is how we say thank you in Chamorro- the indigenous language of Guam: Si Yu’os ma’åse’ (literally, the Lord bless you.) Happy new year, Chris!!
Their 30 day process only took close to 90

Thanks for all your help. We are already taking donations!
Many thanks to you for your invaluable help
Most recent update. I just received confirmation that my revised procurement policy has been approved by the review agent and has recommended approval of the 1023. Many thanks to you for your invaluable help in getting us approved within 2 months. You’re a rock star!!!

Thank you so much for helping me reach this new goal
This is Angella, just wanted you to know that I’ve received my nonprofit letter Friday. Thank you so much for helping me reach this new goal for my organization, and I will be sending others your way for help also.
