WE MAKE IT EASY TO RUN A NONPROFIT

Step 1:
Find a team

It’s important to have a team of officers and other volunteers to spread out the work.

Step 2:
Create bylaws

An organization’s bylaws provide the rules for how to operate.

Step 3:
Budget

Adopting a budget, and having financial controls in place, is key to operating properly.

Step 4:
Update accounts

You may need to update the signature cards for the organization’s bank account(s).

Step 5:
Reconcile & report

The bank account(s) should be reconciled monthly, with reports and bank statements available to all to review.

Step 6:
File on time

The IRS requires 501(c) groups to file a 990-series tax return, and most states require an annual corporate report, fundraising and sales tax renewals.

RENOSI files required reports and registrations for its clients so that they don’t lose their status.
