For years now, obtaining the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status has been an intimidating and challenging process to churches and ministries - UNTIL NOW! With the StartRIGHT Service, it has never been easier to obtain tax-exempt status. There are many benefits to obtaining 501(c)(3) status.

With the StartRIGHT Service, you can rest assured that you, the vision God planted in your heart, and the members of your church are protected. We come along side you and take care of everything. You can get back to pursuing your vision, while we do all of the heavy lifting. Speaking of heavy lifting, here is what some of that entails.


The articles of incorporation* give you a strong legal shield, ensuring your limited legal liability, and protecting you and your members. The StartRIGHT Service helps create articles of incorporation* that reflect your vision and mission, give you the ability to license and ordain ministers of the gospel and that serve as the legal birth of your organization.


We obtain your personal Federal Employer Identification Number, and provide you with all of the information you need to open a church bank account, enabling you to take tax-deductible tithes and offerings. This number is used to identify your corporation and is needed for business and federal purposes. This number may also be known as a Tax ID Number.


Other than the Scriptures, the bylaws* are the most important document in your church. The StartRIGHT Service empowers you to select the bylaws* that protect your vision, your ministry, and your members, adopting the governmental structure that reflects your ministry structure and allowing the pastor's vision to be kept clear.


Many church leaders feel a desire to craft supporting policies, but are overwhelmed at the process of developing the correct wording that will accurately develop such policies. With the StartRIGHT Service, we assist you in developing essential policies that help establish and protect your board of directors and those helping lead your ministry.

Tax-Exempt Status

We understand that planting a home church can be a difficult journey, which is why we have made it very simple, secure, and affordable for every church to obtain tax-exempt status. We fill out the 501(c)(3) application with you, using the information that you give us, and we guarantee that you will be approved for your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status or your money back.


Many ministers believe that they are only able to plant a home church if they have either been ordained or licensed as ministers of the gospel. However, after establishing a church on a solid legal foundation, you can become ordained right through the very church you started. We provide all of the needed paperwork that empowers your ministry to ordain ministers, including the founder.
