You've got important things to do. Like changing lives. That's why Nonprofits First created the 501c Pro Toolkit. When your organizational structure is sound, you can focus on the real work — delivering services, strategizing solutions, and gaining support for your cause.

The 501c Pro Toolkit is a comprehensive online self-assessment resource loaded with crucial information to ensure your organization meets legal requirements and implements best practices that are important to staff, clients, and donors.

Setting the Standard

The 501c Pro Toolkit’s twelve modules cover critical nonprofit management topics and include standards, tools, templates, and helpful links:

  • Governing Documents
  • Board Governance
  • Strategic Planning
  • Risk Management
  • Fundraising
  • Human Resources
  • Volunteer / Intern Management
  • Financial Management and Reporting
  • Contractors and Consultants
  • Debit and Credit Cards

Toolkit users also receive assistance through the 501c Pro Helpline. You're only an email away from access to expertise from Nonprofits First's staff and widely recognized volunteer consultants.

“Thank you so much! I love the Toolkit and the support you all are providing!”
