Writing Your Narrative Just Got 10 times Easier!

Customizing Your Narrative Description of Programs and Activities Couldn't Be Easier

Each kit contains an MSWord file with the exact wording we’ve used to prepare the description of programs and activities for the type of organization included in the kit. Most of these activities are charitable, educational and religious in nature. You will find some activities may be similar to your organization and some that are not. If you’re giving away something, teaching something or conducting religious activities, you can use our templates as a guide to help you describe your organization’s planned activities.

Example:  The kit may have descriptions for food distribution or clothing distribution to homeless people; but your organization is giving away backpacks filled with school supplies to children in low-income areas. You will change the wording and the target group to adapt the description to your organization.

Here's Another Example:  We have a transitional living program kits for Ex-offenders; and another kit for Women. You plan to target runaway teens. You will change the wording for the target group.

Use our template as a guide to get an understanding of what type of information and just how much information you can include in the description. You should not expect that all your intended programs and activities will be included in our kit as no two organizations are exactly alike.

Hello Ms.  Whitfield,

Love Without Borders purchased your kit and in five short months, after submitting the application we are Approved!!!   I believed this was a God move. In browsing the Internet looking for information on how to complete the 501c3 application. The Lord led me to your website. I read the blogs and signed up. Weeks later I purchased the " [sample] kit" and the rest is history.

I know that you have hundreds- thousands of people like myself, who are thanking you for equipping them with information,  but you don't understand what this approval has done for me. There's nothing impossible, when God says do it! I did and He worked it out...

I am so overwhelmed. We are ready and able to do great things for the Kingdom of God - God's love will be exemplified through us! Thank you so much! We could not have done this without you. My prayer is that God will continue to bless you in all that you do, for you are truly making a difference in the lives of people.


- Kelly Williams, Love Without Borders

This kit has been a big help. The example of the completed form was just what I needed!

- Laura L.

The package of documents were very complete and comprehensive. All of the information was logically ordered, I was very pleased.

Testimony time, Our church had been trying to get a 501c3 since 2010 paid two different people to do it. They charge the church but never filed any paper or presented any papers. So I decided to try, I ordered the sample kit, and Ms Whitfield has put it together so nicely very easy to follow I have never done this before and I also learned a lot of new legal words Lol.

I read it then set out to [customize] it to my churches needs took about a week in my spare time. We mailed it on Dec 17, 2013 got a Letter stating they had received it in about 2wks. and today Feb 7, 2014 can somebody say today, we got the approval for the 501c3 not even a full two months. Everybody said 6mo. to a year because they were [backed] up. I just want to say thank you Ms. Whitfield for using your God given talent to put these kits together to help us. God bless you. We will be getting another one for Our Transitional home soon.

The 501 c 3 Kit that I purchased was wonderful. It meant a lot to me that I could use it and understand what I was doing. I highly recommend this to anyone. I could not have completed the kit without Belinda's assistance. At first I thought it was an online scam. So I dialed the number, she answered and asked how could she bless me today. I knew from that point, she was legitimate. I submitted my Kit to the IRS in Oct., 2014, I was informed by IRS that I should be receiving my non profit certification by the end of Feb., 2015.

The 501 c 3 package was wonderful. If you are not sure what you are doing that is the only way to go. I could not have completed the package with Ms Whitfield's help. I cannot thank you enough. I purchased the package in October of 2014. I am happy to say I have received my certification.

I thank God for her as she blesses others. I cannot stress enough how much having that kit meant to me. Thanks Belinda!

  1. Set Free Over All incorparated says:

    my question is would this Application help the business get their 501 c 3 you been in business how long

    • This sample was for a new 501c3 organization. It is a good example to follow, but you may have other issues to work through since you’ve been in business for a while. If you incorporated as a for-profit, then switching to a not-for-profit is an issue.

      If you were incorporated as a not-for-profit organization for more than 27 months and still haven’t filed your 501c3, then that’s another issue you’ll have to address as you respond to certain questions and complete Schedule E of Form 1023.

      • delonia lowe says:

        i did not meet the 27 month period and i am concerned about what to do at this point. What would you suggest.

  2. Margaret Washington says:

    Will it cost me $[modified since comment was posted]to get a copy of Sample 501c3 Application for Transitional Living Programs for Women
    & Sample 501c3 Application for Outreach Ministries Kit…I am wanting to open an non-profit home to help individual with mental health issues for women and men?

    • Hello Margaret,

      You may purchase only one kit. The Transitional Living Programs for Women kit should be just fine.
      You can tweak the wording for your programs and activities to target your niche (i.e. mental health issues for men and women).

      Peace and Blessings,

  3. courtney says:

    I want to open a transitional living program for kids that leave foster care, 18-25, boys and girls. Would i use the one you created for the womens program to?

    • Hi Courtney,

      Yes, the Sample 501c3 Application for Transitional Living Program for Women would be the kit. You can simply customize the description to show you are targeting this group.

      By the way, I am so grateful for what you are doing. Having been a foster parent of two children and still being supportive to one of them who’s now 19, I know there is a great need. May God bless you and what you are doing.


  4. Silvia Trice says:


    I have a few questions about the application process for a non profit 501 (c)3.

    I wanted to know if you could guestimate a turn around time for approval and will I be able to submit a pending status?

    I also wanted to know if the L3C Hybrid non profit for profit corporation and a private foundation ccompetible with 501(c)3?

    Thanks I am looking forward to the starter kit


    • Hi Silvia,

      The IRS does not have a fixed timeline to process applications.

      I can only advise you from experience, as my applications have been approved in 5 to 6 weeks.
      Some have been approved in 3 to 4 weeks.
      Every now and then (but its quite rare), one of mine will get submitted to a review agent.
      I just knew my 501c3 application for a CDC would be assigned to a review agent.
      But it got approved in 3 weeks.

      If your return is assigned to an agent for review, the wait is much longer.
      According to this link on the IRS website: Where Is My Exemption Application?, its 9/6/11 and they are assigning returns that were submitted in March 2011 to an agent for review.

      You asked “Will I be able to submit a pending status?”. If this has to do with a grant application, its up to the agency awarding the grant. Some may want the Letter of Determination, while others may accept that you’ve submitted the application.

      Peace and Blessings!

  5. Hi,

    My name is Stephanie and I am needing to know if your starter kit will fully give me all details in filing for a non-profit license for a Drug and alcohol treatment house for women in recovery.

  6. RTC Clinical Consulting says:

    What application sample would I use for homeless shelter for teens?

  7. RTC Clinical Consulting says:

    Adding to previous comment: runaway shelter . Thanks

    • Hi There,

      Sorry for the delay. I’ve been really busy and finally getting to review comments.
      I know its been a while and you’ve probably resolved your issue. But here goes…

      The sample 501c3 application kit for Transitional Program for Women would be a good resource to use as a guide.
      You will customize the details to indicate your target market is runaway teens instead of women.

      I hope this helps,
      Belinda Whitfield

  8. Hello,

    I noticed that you have a packet for outreach ministries, which is what I currently do. However, I am looking toward transitional housing for women as this has been my passion for 15 years. Do I have to purchase both packets or should I just start with the outreach packet?

    Thank you so much for your time

    • Hello Nikki,

      You should not purchase both kits. I would suggest purchasing the 501c3 Sample Kit the Transitional Living Program.
      I can send you the outreach ministry program descriptions after your purchase.

      Peace and Blessings!
      Belinda Whitfield

    • Hello Octavia,

      Sorry for the delayed response. It’s been a very busy week for me. You’ll want to order the kit for the transitional living program for women. You may customize the narrative description of programs target young ladies. Yes, the IRS will charge a fee to process your application if your annual revenues will exceed $10,000 over the next four years.
