How to Apply for an Affiliate Charter for Your Religious Organization

Become an Affiliate Charter for a 501c3 Religious Organization if...

You are NOT an established religious organization yet and you do NOT have your own Federal nonprofit tax exempt status with a 501(c)3 determination letter from the IRS, nonprofit articles of incorporation and bylaws.

And you want to partner with an internationally known fellowship to establish your 501(c)3 tax exempt status for a ministry service such as: Christian education, Bible college, Sunday School, Bible study, evangelism and/or missionary outreaches, orphanages, Christian counseling center, music ministry, grants for religious purposes, food pantry outreaches and other similar ministries.

You also desire all the great benefits Kingsway has to offer including a strong spiritual covering, fellowship, guidance, and recognition.
