What's Included

Education

Operating a nonprofit organization is a challenging task. We’re here to help you grow as a nonprofit leader so you can better serve your community. Our mission is to support your mission by providing extensive education and resources.

We guarantee your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status will be granted by the IRS or we give your money back. We’ve helped over 45,000 nonprofit organizations and stand behind our work. 

If your nonprofit’s gross receipts are less than the $50,000 threshold, you may be required to submit Form 990-N, sometimes referred to as the e-Postcard. You will need to submit this document electronically no later than five months and 15 days after the end of the fiscal year.

The BryteBridge Knowledge Center contains articles on every aspect of your nonprofit’s operation. Look up your questions and find answers from our years of experience and research into best practices. Our Knowledge Center is built into your client portal and included with every membership.

Support

In addition to our extensive educational platforms, we’re here to provide you with dedicated support. Our Connect memberships include our online portal, open office hours, and one-on-one consultations to offer the dedicated support you need.

Our Connect memberships offer the highest level of support for our clients. No matter what your questions or needs are, we have a way to help fulfill them. Our team of nonprofit experts is here to help you and your nonprofit for every step of its journey.

Membership comes with access to our monthly office hours video calls. These monthly sessions allow you to ask questions, learn from others, and grow as a nonprofit leader. If you can’t make the call, we email the video so you can still watch and participate at your convenience.

Some questions require more nuance and detail about your organization. Our Connect memberships include access to our team of expert consultants for a personalized session. Ask your questions directly to one of our experts, and we’ll provide guidance.

Our online client portal includes everything you need to track and monitor your organization. It also provides access to the membership question system. Membership includes opportunities specifically to ask your compliance and education-related questions.

Compliance

While nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) tax exemption status don’t pay federal taxes, they must complete the annual compliance requirement by filing Form 990. IRS Form 990 helps nonprofits conduct their business in a way that complies with their public nonprofit responsibilities. This form gives the IRS an overview of your activities throughout the last fiscal year, including income and expense activity details. It also helps donors understand how your nonprofit organization operates and is managed. Form 990 is often referred to as the nonprofit tax return. The IRS places such a high importance on this annual filing that it will revoke the tax-exempt status of any organization that fails to file for three (3) years!

Not to worry, because most Connect memberships come with preparing and filing your organization’s annual 990 filings. When your fiscal year ends, we’ll confirm some information and ask for your end-of-year financial statements (Income Statements and Balance Sheets). Our team of tax professionals will then take care of the rest and make sure your 990 Annual Report is filed before the IRS filing deadline. In the rare case that we need additional information or time, we’ll file an Extension on your behalf so your organization remains fully compliant and up-to-date with the IRS.

If your organization brought in more revenue than anticipated and needs to file a higher level 990 than what your membership includes, we have an easy upgrade option available. We’ll charge a one-time fee to cover the cost difference of the 990 filings and upgrade your monthly membership accordingly.

In the rare case that your organization must file a 990-T (for organizations with unrelated business income tax), we also offer a one-time add-on fee for that filing requirement.

Any Connect membership with compliance services includes our Compliance Guarantee. We guarantee that your organization will remain in good standing with the IRS and the state(s) of operation. Your annual reports, charity registration renewal, and 990 will be filed on time. If we miss a filing date, our BryteBridge Guarantee covers any fines or penalties, and we will make it right.

Guarantee excludes situations when BryteBridge can’t perform work due to unresponsiveness from the client.

Seeking donations from the public requires your nonprofit to be registered annually with your state’s Division of Charities or Attorney General. The rules vary by state, so you need professionals who know how to navigate complex fundraising regulations. Charity Registration keeps your organization fully compliant and able to seek donations and grants. Most of our Connect memberships include the Charity Registration Renewal in the state of domicile. Additional states of operation require a state add-on fee.

Sometimes, organizations need to update their state records after filing an annual report. Maybe the address changes or the organization wants to modify the officers. In these situations, an amendment is required. Pro and Elite memberships include state amendments, so you can always update the information promptly.

Any Connect membership with compliance services includes monitoring public state databases to ensure the Annual Report and Charity Registration remain active and in good standing. *State Income Tax and Sales Tax Exemptions are not included in our monitoring services, and completing these services requires members to request the service based on current state renewal dates.

Some states require ongoing renewal of corporate income tax exemption. Pro and Elite memberships include a state income tax exemption renewal in the state of domicile.

*State Income Tax Exemptions are not included in our monitoring services, and completing this service requires members to request the service based on current state renewal dates.

Additional states of operation require a state add-on fee.

Annual Reports are typically filed with the Secretary of State and alert that the nonprofit organization is still operating. These yearly forms are typically required whether or not you need to change the organization’s address or officers. The data displayed on the entity’s annual report is the most current data on file with the state and is available to the public, usually in an online database. Most Connect memberships include the Annual Report in the state of domicile. Additional states of operation require a state add-on fee.

Some states require ongoing renewal of state sales tax exemption. Pro and Elite memberships include the state sales tax exemption renewal in the state of domicile.

*State Sales Tax Exemptions are not included in our monitoring services, and completing this service requires members to request the service based on current state renewal dates.

Additional states of operation require a state add-on fee.
