Join fellow C-suite nonprofit executives for this exclusive discussion.


There is no doubt that nonprofits would like to put all things COVID-related in the rear-view mirror. However, would you be willing to explore how to recoup funds owed to your nonprofit from taxes paid during the COVID pandemic? While there is no doubt most nonprofits have been inundated with emails and phone calls regarding the Employee Retention Tax Credit, we invite you to learn the real reasons why this program is being so heavily promoted. We will share realistic expectations of funding, timeframes to receive these funds, how to select a reputable consultant, and much more. Most importantly, all nonprofits should know if they do OR do not qualify for these funds in order to make an educated decision as to whether or not to pursue the program. Please join us to learn more and have all your questions answered in this educational format.  

 Attendees will learn about:

  • Dispelling common misconceptions about the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), such as: we have been told we do not qualify, we already took PPP loans, we had an increase in revenue- Should I take a second look?

  • Walking nonprofits through the simple process of applying for the program and clarify what the time investment is?

  • Helping nonprofits make an educated decision on how to select a qualified ERC consultant.
