The Problem

Excessive Waiting Period & Money Spent on Nonprofit Creation

Several years ago our client Natalie decided to create a nonprofit. She wanted to help underprivileged kids obtain basic needs and guidance in the Sacramento, CA area.

Natalie hired a reputable San Francisco attorney to fulfill the corporate tasks of her organization. She to have the nonprofit running as quickly as possible.

Initially, the lawyer’s fees were a retainer of $1,400 and a filing fee of $400. To Natalie, this seemed reasonable at the time.

Sadly, what happened next was a typical situation for many people while creating nonprofit organizations. The attorney took their time fulfilling their duty — it took 1 year, 6 months, and 5 days to finish the paperwork. The lawyer didn’t return phone calls, made excuses for why it was taking so long, and even charged Natalie extra just to drag the process out further.

When Natalie received a free consultation from us, she informed us that she ended up paying a total of $2,700 to the attorney, along with the aforementioned one-and-a-half year wait. Natalie only received about half of the services we offer to each of our clients.

Later, Natalie’s former lawyer even sent her an offer which stated: “Our law firm provides this Ongoing General Counsel Retainer Program, at an affordable set fee of $1,650, plus any government filing fees for annual filings. This is a $2,500 value available to you for $1,650”.

The Solution

1½ Year Process Finished in 6 Months…for Half the Price

Our client Natalie found our process to have staggering differences. Our total wait time from the beginning of starting a new nonprofit to the end is an average of only 6 months, compared to 1 year and 6 months.

Natalie’s lawyer neglected to finish all of the government required documents, compliance, and filings, so we wrapped that up for her.

And for our entire process we charge about half of what the lawyer charged Natalie. Oh, and the annual filings? We’re about half the price the lawyer was charging her, too.

We don’t like it when people get ripped off and dragged along an unnecessarily long process. So we aspire to set a better, more affordable, and genuine standard for starting your nonprofit organization.

Feel free to compare Team Admins prices and services with a law firm. We believe you’ll notice a big difference.

  • Before coming to us, our client Natalie was charged twice as much as our prices.
  • She waited 1 year and 6 months for paperwork to be finished, we accomplish the same process in an average of 6 months.
  • We had to complete paperwork that the original lawyer didn’t do — which was included in our basic services.
  • Our annual filings, like Form 990 (federal tax form for nonprofits), are accomplished with half the cost of Natalie’s original lawyer.
  • Natalie is able to pour into her community while having everything properly in order.
