I have a 501 (c)3! Now what?

Yay! You established your nonprofit corporation and obtained you 501(c)3 tax-exempt status. You soaked it in and now it just got real. Your vision is here. But wait! Panic sets in as you realize- what do I do now? Where do I go from here? How do I make this happen- not on paper but in reality? It's overwhelming. Where do I start?

Well, you start here! I've broken the steps down between Nonprofit Management and Fundraising/Marketing. The guide lets you know when you can work on steps simultaneously and when one step needs to be completed first. This process takes time but by using Board Committees, the process can be made more efficient. Be patient. These nine steps will set you up for grants in the near future and have your nonprofit on its way to success now!

"You can't imagine how you have helped a class nonprofit in Uganda. My words can't express how important the work you did for us. Thanks."

"I had everything every where until I read your 9 steps. So now I am organizing everything from the start. Glad I met you! It was going to be a disaster."- Henriette K.



Hi! I'm Alesha.

I teach new and small nonprofit leaders how to raise funds so that they can transform the lives of the people they want to serve. I help them set foundations that get them ready for grants and donations. I walk you through sound fundraising practices- action step by action step- to alleviate the overwhelm and make you productive and successfully following your passion for helping people.

I also offer to help the overwhelm by taking fundraising tasks off of your plate.

I served in the nonprofit world for ten years in the fields of administration, marketing and PR, programs, and Board member of new and established nonprofits. I've worked for nonprofits with over 400 employees and multi-million dollar budgets and nonprofits with less than 10 employees and under a million dollar budget.
