TURN YOUR PASSION INTO REALITY!
We specialize in creative solutions to help you make the most of your time, treasure, and talent. If you are looking for an organization to help you design a project, raise funds, ensure accountability, provide logistical support or administrative support, or make sure that your time and effort are utilized wisely, then you have come to the right place. We want to help you turn your passion into a reality.
There are approximately 1.5 million nonprofit organizations in the United States today, of which 33% have annual revenues of $50,000 or less, and 73% have annual revenues of less than $250,000. Applying for an maintaining 501(c)(3) status has become considerably more complicated and expensive today. If you want to set up a nonprofit that will have an annual income of over $50,000, the time for approval by the IRS is running more than a year, and the process can easily cost over $10,000. Once approved the annual requirements of the 990 tax form, receipting donors, paying staff, technical advice for a website, fundraising, corporate paperwork and administrative meetings can easily take 20-30% of your budget and time.
The Joy to the World Foundation was started in 2003 specifically to help those who help others by providing people like you with the tools to turn your vision into a reality. Our office has sponsored over 500 projects in the US and around the world, and on average 95% of the funds donated go directly to support program services. It is our goal to help people who want to be involved in charitable activities full time, part time, or in their spare time.
We want to help you get your project off the ground. We provide administrative services, banking services, fundraising services, technoloy, and experience for new and smaller organizations so that they can be established and realize their full potential.
People start charitable projects and nonprofits because they want to spend their time helping people, not with administrative tasks like receipting, bookkeeping, administrative meetings, and government compliance. The Joy to the World Foundation removes all of these barriers and can have your project up and running in less than a week!
We have 15 years of experience partnering with existing 501(c)(3) organizations, large and small.
We help establish new or smaller organizations on a firm foundation. One third of nonprofits in the US have under $50,000 in annual revenue, and two thirds of nonprofits have annual revenue under $250,000. People start nonprofits because they want to spend their time helping others, but new and smaller organizations regularly spend a substantial amount of time on administration or government compliance. We help new and smaller organizations by removing barriers to spending time on your programs such as donation receipting, bookkeeping, "Help Desk" support for donors, IT support, charitable and state regulations, and much more.
We equip midsize charities to grow. If your organization is part of the 87% of charities that have annual revenue under $1,000,000, we can help you cut your administrative burden and costs with our financial services, fundraising support, operational services, and legal and other professional support. Projects under Joy to the World Foundation are equipped to grow because they receive all of the our services for a maximum of 5% of their annual budget.
We enable larger charities to meet special needs. The Joy to the World Foundation also provides support services on an à la carte basis, enabling larger charities or foreign charities that do not need our full services to have access to special services available to projects under the Foundation that may be difficult to meet under their existing structure. For example, project activities that they would like to pursue that are outside their basic mission, medical/benevolence support for staff members or their families, gifts to foreign charities that require oversight, or ways to have people other than employees paid for charitable service and internships.
Our Associate Ministers Programs is designed to provide a valuable opportunity for ministers who would like to do independent ministry or work for an approved charitable project. It can also give you the ability to begin developing a fundraising base for an independent full-time ministry you want to pursue.
We know that everyone's passion for charitable work is unique, so we've designed specialized programs to assist individuals with particular administrative needs.
