Starting a nonprofit can be both exciting and overwhelming. Nonprofit professionals must stay on top of many moving parts to be successful in the long term. Despite nonprofits being tax-exempt, and having an inherently altruistic nature, they must remain in compliance. It’s important to have the systems and tools in place to help you launch, grow and sustain your organization. 

If you’re starting out, you may be asking yourself, “Where do I even begin?” The Empowerment Center is here to help.

Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, we help organizations across the city, state, and throughout the US, become more empowered to impact their communities.

Our team of consultants can help you get your business started. We can:

  • Help you determine which type of business is right for you (for-proft vs. nonprofit)
  • Check your state business registration status and that it is completed correctly
  • Make changes and/or amendments to your existing business name
  • Set up your 501(c)3 tax exemption status (if you are a nonprofit)
  • Review or reinstate your current tax exemption for accuracy and compliance
  • Track grants and file paperwork

Let us help you start your nonprofit.

You can work with our team to form your new small or nonprofit business. By meeting with one of our consultants, we’ll make sure to get you on the right track to achieve your business goals. We equip you with the information you need to run a successful business, handling anything from administrative paperwork to board member recruitment!

One of the most important things you will need to do is file your articles of incorporation to legitimize your business, as well as apply for tax exemption if you are a nonprofit ― nonprofits are granted 501(c)3 tax-exempt status by the IRS. 

Our team can typically complete your articles of incorporation and get your approval within 24-48 hours. Save time, money, and stress, and get your nonprofit registered as tax-exempt the right way ― with us. Our paperwork processing is fast and easy! Meet with a consultant and get your paperwork filed in as soon as 14 days.

Working with us is simple & gives you what you need – peace of mind.
