Capstone's Ministry Charity Project (MCP) “ministry incubator” allows you to use our 501 (c) (3) status in all 50 states. Receive donations by smartphone while building comradery and mutual support with our other MCP leaders nationwide. For a 9% management fee (the lowest in the field), Capstone handles the following complexities and compliances so you can enjoy the work you're actually called to do:

  • Filing articles of incorporation
  • Forming a board of directors and appointing officers
  • Drafting bylaws, rules, and policy
  • Applying for IRS tax-exemption (which can take 5 years)
  • Filing for an EIN number
  • Completing eligibility tax worksheets
  • Submitting the 11-part form 1023
  • Submitting articles of incorporation
  • Submitting required bylaws
  • Applying for state tax exemption
  • Filing W2 forms and other tax forms for employees
  • Opening bank accounts

You'll be included in Capstone’s annual audit report as we handle the annual 990 form required by the IRS for all 501(c)(3) non-profits, and receive general business insurance coverage—including property damage, general liability, and worker’s compensation. Feel free to remain with us indefinitely or venture off at any time to form your own 501 (c) (3).
