Take the 30 Day
Compliance Challenge

We will cover the full range of the basic requirements to keep your organization legal within 4 weeks. Your challenge is to participate in up to 4 workshops and make sure your organization’s paper work is current within 30 days of the end of the series. Contact Valerie at consulting@valeriefleonard.com or 773-571-3886 to share how it goes.

The Problem

Between 2011 and 2014, 14, 922 tax exempt organizations in the State of Illinois lost their exempt status for failure to file Form 990 for three consecutive years. Most of these organizations have had to pay significant penalties or even dissolve their corporations as a result. Don’t let this happen to your organization.

All workshops will be held at B.U.I.L.D., 5100 West Harrison, in Chicago, IL, from 10:00 am until 11:30 a.m. The fee is $25.00 per workshop up to 1 week in advance, and $35.00 at the door.

What You Will Learn

The roles of the IRS, Attorney General’s Office, Secretary of State’s Office and Department of Revenue in regulating nonprofit organizations and helping them to succeed
The roles and responsibilities of board members and key organizational leadership in record keeping, financial reporting and maintaining compliance
What to do if you lose tax exemption
The consequences and penalties of late filings and registrations
Which forms you need to register nonprofits and professional fundraisers
Which forms you need to file on an annual basis, including annual reports, form 990’s and AG-990’s and 941’s (payroll taxes)

We will discuss school closings in Chicago. My focus will be the impact on North Lawndale and similar communities. Andrea Zopp and Carlos Azcoitia will share their perspectives as members of the Chicago Board of Education, and Carol R.
