Received 501(c)3 exemption in record time

August 25, 2022

We were elated to receive our 501(c)3 letter of exemption on August 12, 2022. The application was filed in April, 2022. We had expected a minimum of 6 months. The IRS 1023 website was reporting that they were working on applications submitted prior to November 3, 2021.

Our application was processed without requiring any amendments, thanks to the careful and professional assistance of Chris Sorbi.

Three Weeks From Submittal to Approval - Pay Attention, do what is suggested

July 25, 2022

We had no money to pay someone to help us form our nonprofit and obtain 501(c)(3) status. We had a good idea and $100 so we donated to get the template package with the 40 minutes of consulting. Within 3 weeks and about 100 hours of reading and typing we had a legally formed California Nonprofit Corporation, EIN, CA Secretary of State and DOJ clearance, web site and submitted our form 1023 to the IRS. At the end of three weeks we had our approval letter. With all the fees and the pittance to the whole thing cost under $1,000., $600 of it was the IRS fee for the 1023 review. We did not have an expediting letter. We followed Chris’s instructions and suggestions, honed our story, typed like mad people, and it worked. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

Great experience!

The 1023 application is daunting to say the least. The materials Chris provided, as well as the personal feedback given, have alleviated my stress during this process. We are going to be submitting our 1023 application and supporting documents very soon, and I have great confidence that we have been prepared for success through the resources at

My non-profit was Approved!

June 24, 2022

I was about to spend thousands of dollars for someone to prepare and file my non-profit exemption paperwork for me until someone encouraged me to take my time and do it on my own. I had no clue and just started doing research and I feel God lead me to this site. I took my time and followed the instructions by the letter and submitted my application to the IRS. I am happy to report 6 months later (I didn’t expedite) I received my determination letter from the IRS designating my organization as a legitimate 501c3! I could not have done it without the great information from this site! God bless you for providing this wealth of information and I truly can not thank you enough!

A Man and Website of Integrity

June 1, 2022

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!

The true one stop shop

May 1, 2022

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!!!

April 20, 2022

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!!

Satisfactory Outcomes!

March 8, 2022

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!

Absolutely Amazing Resource

October 14, 2021

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!
