"Thank you for working with myself and the organization that I believe so deeply in.  Without your assistance in navigating the various processes we never would have been able to start our nonprofit on the right foot."

Our nonprofit consultant will work with you in establishing your organization.  We provide the following services to individuals/groups wanting to start a nonprofit in New York:

  • Incorporation (Articles, Bylaws, Initial Meeting Minutes)
  • Tax-Exempt Application with IRS
  • Tax-Exempt Application with NYS
  • Department of Charities Registration
  • Board Development & Responsibilities of Board Members
  • Development of a Board Manual
  • Program Development
  • Grant Development, Planning & Grant Writing

As the governing body of a nonprofit, the board of directors or board of trustees fulfills a variety of roles and responsibilities. Among its many duties, the board:

  • Oversees the financial operations of the organization
  • Maintains the legal and ethical standing of the organization and its staff
  • Provides leadership and strategic direction for the organization
  • Serves as guardian of the public trust
  • Ensures that an organization remains accountable to its donors and to the general public

In order to carry out these duties effectively, the board will often need to expand as an organization grows and matures. While recruitment is one important step in this process, a broad, systematic approach to board development, including orientation, training, evaluation, and the cultivation of prospective board members, is critical to ensuring the long-term success of any board.
