What's So Important About a Consultative Approach?

Simply put, Foundation Group’s Consultative Approach is how we ensure that your new nonprofit gets established in a way that satisfies your state and the IRS, and is positioned for long-term success.

Having successfully guided thousands of nonprofits through the 501(c)(3) process, we’ve learned a thing or two about what works…and what doesn’t.  Here’s the one, inescapable truth:

There are NO cookie-cutter nonprofits!

Every nonprofit is different…different mission, different goals and different challenges.  And it’s the challenges that go to the heart of why the consultative approach matters so much.  Challenges like:

  • Conflict of interest
  • Copyrights and intellectual property
  • Real estate transactions
  • Related parties
  • Membership
  • Paid staff
  • Selling of goods or services
  • Work in a foreign country

The list could go on and on…

Issues like these are complex and the solutions are situation-dependent.  Handled incorrectly, they can completely derail a nonprofit startup.

Don’t settle for less than the best!  Make the strategic decision today to work with someone who knows how to advise you properly.  Instead of experimenting with do-it-yourself or document preparation services, let us help you get it right the first time.

Make Our Team, Your Team!

When I launched Foundation Group in 1995, it was my vision to provide the most solid, expert counsel available to our nonprofit clients.   Our specialists are the top-of-their-field in IRS tax-exemption issues.  They are passionate about their craft and have advised clients through some of the most complex situations imaginable.  There are few scenarios we haven’t worked with, so yours won’t throw us for a loop.

We will work with you, helping you to create a plan that will not only satisfy IRS scrutiny, it also will be the best possible solution to accomplishing your mission.  You will have the best of the best working for you, giving you the confidence you need in launching this new venture.

Partnering in your success,

Greg McRay, EA
President & CEO
