The Truth about Tent City Missions

In order to become a nonprofit 501c3 one must first either incorporate or become an LLC (limited liability corporation). Once that is established you may file for the 501c3 status. The easiest way to start off is to have a sponsor and work under that nonprofit until you have your own number processed. An LLC does not have an owner, it has MEMBERS, in this case, board members who meet quarterly to review expenditures and donations received. In our case, our 501c3 sponsorship is through a church, refer to IRS publication 1828, tax guide for churches and religious organizations, publication 557, tax exempt status for your organization. Now, I am not sure at all why it should matter to anyone if I have a job or not, but for 2 and a half weeks, and during the time of the tv interview, I had left my job as my time is really really needed handling everything we have going on right now. However, since then my previous job asked me to come back while they are short staffed, since I DO have to do my share to provide for my family and help supplement my husbands income, I have returned to work for the time being. How long I will be able to do both I am not sure, just going to go with however I feel God is leading me. As for the nasty and accusatory remarks, I am not even going to wast my time worrying about those. I will continue to go down the path I feel God has led me to follow and trust HIM to deal with nonsense. If there are any other questions or concerns anyone would like to discuss, I am very easily reachable by cell before 2pm Monday through Friday. Thank you and God bless.  (Aug 30, 2012 | post #35)
