Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do you start a nonprofit corporation?

Jennifer does offer technical assistance in starting up nonprofit organizations. It's  important to understand the legal requirements in the state where the nonprofit will operate before you begin. Before you begin the process, research your cause to see if there  are nonprofits already established in your area with the same or a similar mission. It’s also  a good idea to contact the state association of nonprofits in your state for state- specific guidance. We also encourage you to join Jen’s Community of Nonprofit Leaders:  Nonprofit Leaders Impacting Lives where there are lots of free tools, videos and  information.

Q: What is a Public Charity?

Public charities are those tax-exempt nonprofits recognized under IRS Code section  501(c)(3) that receive funding from the public at large (as opposed to private foundations that receive their funding from a limited number of sources, typically from interest earned on the corpus of an endowment). Financial support for public charities can come in the form of donations from individuals as well as earned income, and from contracts/grants from the government (for services the nonprofits provides for the state/local or federal  government), private foundations, corporate foundations, community foundations, donor advised funds, and other nonprofits. Public charities must demonstrate sufficient public support in order to maintain their favored tax status. Many organizations classified as 
public charities, such as churches, schools and hospitals, provide services directly to their  intended beneficiaries. However, charitable nonprofits can also help other public charities  operate by providing financial support or other resources.

Q. What are the requirements for acknowledging charitable contributions?

It’s good practice to thank your donors for any size gift, but surprisingly, a formal,  written gift acknowledgement is only required by law for contributions over $250 and quid pro quo contributions. The IRS rules are explained in  IRS Publication 1771 . Donors, however, expect a receipt for donations of any size so they can claim a tax deduction for 
charitable contributions.

Q: What should the gift acknowledgement include?

Acknowledgements should include confirmation of the tax-exempt status of the  nonprofit, a description of the item(s) donated, the date of receipt, and whether or not the  nonprofit provided goods and services in exchange for the donation.

Q: How much should a nonprofit spend on overhead?

Whatever is necessary to advance the organization's mission. There is no set percentage  that would indicate that one nonprofit is run any more effectively than another. Overhead costs are investments in necessary infrastructure, including rent, paying staff, replacing old computers, repairing a leaky roof, etc. A better gauge of an efficient nonprofit is its impact in the community.

Q: What is an acceptable amount for a nonprofit to pay its CEO/Executive Director?

Overhead is generally defined as a combination of “management,” “general,” and  “fundraising” expenses. There are definitions found in the  Instructions to the Form 990 . Based on the 990, a nonprofit has three categories of costs: Management and General, Program, and Fundraising. Management & General plus Fundraising make up overhead costs. Program Costs: The costs incurred in connection with a specific program or activity of the organization. These are the costs often referred to as direct costs. Some nonprofits have only one program, others many. Fundraising Costs: Costs that involve seeking, soliciting, or securing charitable contributions. Examples: development staff, the fees paid to a fundraising consulting firm, and the fees paid to register the charitable nonprofit for solicitation purposes. Management and General Costs: All the other costs that are needed to operate the organization and are shared across programs.

Q: What’s the best way to determine whether a nonprofit is a legitimate charity?

There is no set amount that is right, or wrong. A nonprofit is like any other employer and needs to pay competitive wages to attract and retain quality employees. As nonprofits work to improve communities, they require leaders and staff with the right skills and expertise to accomplish the nonprofit's mission. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to evaluate and set appropriate compensation for the CEO/Executive Director of the organization.
