Elephant Population Management Program

I was struggling with how to tackle the 1023 application for tax exempt and then I found Linda Akey – thank goodness!! Linda was instrumental in helping Elephant Population Management Program achieve 501c3 status. It was with her efficient, effective and professional help that in a period of approximately 4 months we completed the application. She did such a great job that we were awarded our tax exempt status in very short order after submission – which I understand is quite unusual. We couldn’t have done it without her help. Our whole team knows it was because of her experience and ability to accurately complete that complicated and confusing 1023 application to the IRS that led to our approval. We continue to work with her on annual filings and activities to keep us in compliance. We are incredibly grateful for her assistance and professionalism in helping newbie non-profiteers. As a result we are able to focus on the mission of our organization…..

Loveland Opera Theatre

It is a pleasure to recommend Linda Akey to you for the outstanding work that she did for Loveland Opera Theatre on the creation and submission of our Form 1023 application for 501c3 tax exempt status to the IRS.  From initiation of the application to the completion and filing with the IRS, Linda drove the entire process.  Linda’s accuracy resulted in the application gaining approval with no additional information required from the IRS.  We submitted the application and received approval from the IRS within 2 weeks!  Her hard work and dedication were instrumental in the successful completion of the application.  On behalf of Loveland Opera Theatre, I highly recommend Linda Akey for completing 1023 applications for other organizations

A Child’s Dream

Linda Akey was instrumental in researching and helping do the Macdonald Family Charity 1023 Application for our 501c3. Without her help, we wouldn’t have been granted our status in the timely manner we were. I am confident she would be an asset to any organization that needed assistance or had questions concerning IRS nonprofit status.
