  • Hi my name is Scott and I am the founder of Ocean Grand. Many years ago I created the

  • Ocean Grand organization because I continually ran into those that needed a simple resource

  • to take the confusion out of starting and running a successful nonprofit.  There are

  • hundreds of articles on the web that instruct people on the steps, but few that actually

  • take them through the steps.  In addition, it seemed to me that most people wanting to

  • do nonprofit work needed a simple sign-up process and then continued steps to fund and

  • then run their nonprofit.  While it is true that there are several ways to set up, fund,

  • and run a nonprofit, there are simpler ways than others to actually do these steps.  I

  • wanted to give people a resource that helped them get their nonprofit dreams launched in

  • a way that was the simplest and least expensive.  If you want a simple, easy and effective

  • way to start, fund and run a nonprofit, then I want to show you a way to do it in three

  • simple steps.

  • I want to take a couple of minutes and explain what makes Ocean Grand so unique in the nonprofit

  • world and why we have been able to help thousands around the world in quickly setting up a nonprofit.

  • One thing I promise I will not do on this video is give you a generic list of "To Do"

  • items on how to start a nonprofit like 1. Incorporate in your state" etc. Instead of

  • lists, we offer real information and real help in how to start a nonprofit organization.

  • One of the most common question we get is why does everyone say we should download your

  • Simple Nonprofit package to help us set up our nonprofit?

  • WE HELP OVERCOME 3 COMMON HURDLES Well, there are 3 common hurdles that people

  • and organizations face when they start nonprofit work.

  • 1ST HURDLE The 1st and possibly the largest of the challenges

  • is "how do I get my nonprofit set up?" How long is that going to take? or even how much

  • is it going to cost?

  • Typically, tax exempt nonprofits cost several thousand dollars to get set up and many months

  • of waiting for the approval. Even if you could find an attorney to set up the corporation

  • pro-bono there filing fees to the Irs that are close to $1000.

  • However, one of the reasons that many come to Ocean Grand is that we can help you get

  • a fully functioning tax exempt 501c3 nonprofit set up for under $400 and a few weeks of waiting.

  • I promised not to go through the to do list of things to set up a nonprofit but we get

  • phone calls everyday from people who have been trying to set up a nonprofit for years.

  • They have a great nonprofit idea and they have the heart and passion to do the nonprofit

  • work but they just have not been able to figure out how to get or afford to get the nonprofit

  • set up.

  • We take care of that for you and can walk you though the process of setting up a nonprofit

  • so you can get onto doing the nonprofit work you want to do.

  • 2ND HURDLE- FUNDING The second reason we get phone calls and the

  • second hurdle that most face when setting up and running a nonprofit is how do I find

  • funding? What does that look like? Can and how do I do grantwriting? How do I get my

  • image and marketing created and polished so that my nonprofit is attractive to donors

  • and corporations to want to donate? How do you make that image all come together in a

  • nice consistent package so that you and others can be proud of.

  • Then, How do I find and maintain donors? Whether that be those that can fund through grants,

  • individual donors, or corporations that would want to donate to your nonprofit. How do you

  • find and maintain donors that can successfully fund everything your nonprofit does?

  • We help you will all of that and step you right thorough the process of the difficult

  • challenge of fundraising.

  • 3RD HURDLE- Administration The 3rd challenge that nonprofits have is

  • how do I maintain the administration of the nonprofit? The paperwork along can be daunting

  • including employees, payroll, accounting, filing quarterly and end of the year reports,

  • to independent audits.

  • How do I set up all that while still having time to run the nonprofit projects and fundraise?

  • Many come to us who have a great heart and passion to do nonprofit work but running a

  • company is just overwhelming. They tell us "I am not really that type of person that

  • would be good running a nonprofit, I just want to do the field work for the nonprofit.

  • Others come to us who are worn out from the years of doing administration for a nonprofit

  • and are looking for a better way.

  • We can help you set up a nonprofit that is easy to run, simple to maintain, and even

  • you, no matter who you are and what your background is can run a successful nonprofit.

  • A NONPROFIT THAT IS EASY TO RUN We address these three hurdles by giving you

  • an easy and simple way to set up a nonprofit. Then once set up running and maintaining that

  • nonprofit is simple and easy. Many times the nonprofit can be set up inside of several

  • weeks. We can help you gain an education on grantwriting and donor involvement that is

  • laser focused and easy to master. We make it real simple and easy so that you can maintain

  • the funding your nonprofit is going to need in an ongoing basis.

  • Then the way in which you start the nonprofit organization can provide you with a group

  • of people that can take care of all the administration. That frees you and your staff up fto be involved

  • with the ongoing tasks of your nonprofit, running your nonprofit and doing the actual

  • programs, which is the fun part of it. Leaving all the bookwork and back office paperwork

  • to a group of experts.

  • We simplify the process of setting up and running a successful nonprofit and have helped

  • thousands around the world with their nonprofit.

  • nonprofit. We would like to see you, within the next month have your nonprofit started

  • and begin fulfilling all your dreams of what you want to do to make the world a better

  • let another month or year go by.
