Start a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit
Introducing the SureStart nonprofit formation plan.
We created the SureStart system to give you a complete solution with nothing left to chance: incorporation, 501(c)(3) status, charitable solicitation registration, and state and federal compliance filings…all customized to your particular organization. Your success demands nothing less.
Cost-Effective. Turnkey. Guaranteed!
What if you could ensure that your nonprofit was set up from day one with a rock-solid foundation? We have developed a unique, consultative approach designed to incorporate your nonprofit, secure 501(c)(3) status and help you achieve long-term success.
It’s not just document preparation…frankly, lots of people can fill out forms. Starting a successful nonprofit requires much more than that. We deeply engage with you, helping you to structure your nonprofit the right way, so that you accomplish your mission and avoid the pitfalls.
Starting a nonprofit is complicated. Many business plans we hear sound great, but need considerable work to be truly ready-to-launch. You need seasoned professionals to take your vision and help you mold it into a nonprofit entity that is fully compliant, properly structured, and ready to maximize impact.
In our 23 years of experience working with thousands of startup nonprofits, we know that those who partner with Foundation Group have a huge head start at long-term success. Our experts dig deep with you to understand your program, identify opportunities, risks, and areas of concern, then put together the necessary documents and applications that accurately represent your vision. Plus, you can have the comfort of knowing we tackle any IRS questions or concerns on your behalf. Along the way, you will get powerful insights and strategic advice that will jump-start your vision with compliant best practice.
Your 501(c)(3) application will be IRS approved, or your money back. With our 100% IRS success rate, we’ve never had to make good on that!

I am so glad that I stumbled on the Foundation Group from an internet search. At first I thought, “How hard could this be to file all the paperwork with the IRS? I already run my own business.” So I bought one of those “how-to” books from the internet. I started reading it and thought there is NO way I can do this. I quickly picked up the phone and called Foundation Group. They were amazing and put me at ease from the very beginning. Being extremely busy like most of us, I absolutely loved their online technology. It was easy to follow. I was so impressed with the amount of time they spent with me in the interview process. They really wanted to understand my heart and plan for this nonprofit. They wanted to dot every “i” and cross every “t” to make sure that we started our ministry/nonprofit with a firm foundation. Don’t look for a friend of a friend who “might” be able to help you do this for free. You get what you pay for. If you are really serious about starting a 501(c)(3), you need a professional company that will get the job done and do everything you have no idea that really needs to get done. Don’t waste your time looking for another company…you have found the right one.
