THINKING ABOUT STARTING A MINISTRY?
Explore a Charitable C Corporation. It may be less expensive and accomplish the same goals.
The right kind of corporation, set up as an alternative option to a traditional non-profit organization for a ministry can reduce or eliminate much of the difficulty and expense of setting up a 501(c)(3).
What can a Charitable C do for ministers?
- Avoid the expense and difficulty of setting up a 501(c) (3).
- As the Charitable C employee a minister can receive ALL clergy tax benefits.
- The Corporation pays healthcare as a tax-free benefit to employee thus avoiding penalties and disadvantages of Affordable Health Care Act.
- Provide a way to make Charitable donations tax-deductible for the donors.
- Is not subject to the 501(c)(3) rules such as: reasonable compensation, inurement, private benefit and activities exclusively for tax-exempt activities.
Anyone wishing to start a new ministry or spin off from an existing church or group might be a candidate for a Charitable C. It can be especially beneficial for:
- Chaplains except for Government chaplains
- Authors, Musicians or anyone receiving royalties
- Speakers and Evangelists
