Why Churches Must EARN 501(c)((3) Nonprofit Status 

Many churches do not qualify for major grant money because they do not have an earned 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. The Internal Revenue Service allows churches to use an “honorary” 501(c)(3) status to accept tax-free tithes and offerings.

Unfortunately, most grant money providers do not recognize the “honorary” status. Instead, major grant money providers donate money to churches that have earned the 501(c)(3) status that is confirmed by a Determination Letter.

This class teaches you how to complete the 501(c)(3) application process so that churches can benefit from securing revenues to help them continue providing community services. Cost: $20
