Working with the Foundation Group to create Cain Cares was an amazing experience. We were able to create our nonprofit in half of the time I hear others taking, and for exponentially less than what I know others have paid. Everyone from beginning to end that we dealt with was patient, knowledgeable and caring, and I couldn't have asked for a better customer service experience.
We would like to thank you and your staff for all that you have done to enable us to help children in need around the world. Through your hard work and intervention, you have made the process much less stressful for us and we are now tax-exempt with the IRS! A dream that seemed so daunting has become a reality!
Wow, we are amazed that we received our approval letter so quickly! Incredible! I know that if we had done this on our own, that wouldn't have been the case. Thank you so much for all your help. I will be recommending your services to anyone and everyone possible.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am at this moment. I walked from the school to our mailbox (~200yd) this morning and literally danced back. Our 501(c)(3) has been approved. And on the first try! Thank you, thank you, thank you. We could never have done it without you.
We can't thank you enough for all the help and for making this dream come true. You promised and you delivered. Most of all, the arts community, the children, veterans, and many others will have opportunities to flourish and grow where there was no opportunity before because of what you do...and do so very well. Thank you!
