ACTODAY Foundation, Inc.

ACTODAY Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 public charitable non-profit organization committed to economic and community development by Actively Contributing To Our Dynamic Amazing Youth. Our mission is to aid in the development of underprivileged and marginalized youth and to pursue solutions to the underlying causes of poverty through education and empowerment of communities globally to affect change in five socioeconomic areas: healthcare, government, business, education and family. We believe that through critical thinking, tolerance and diversity training, our youth can transcend the barriers of societal and self-impaired degradation.

Our request is for a CPA (preferably one with experience working with non-profits) to organize, file and audit our 990 Tax returns.  We have not generated a great deal of revenue yet and we have not yet produced very high budgets so the process will be fairly simple and straight forward.  We just want everything done correctly and by a certified licensed professional.  We also want to make sure that we are exercising all of the practices that make our book keeping most efficient and sustainable for years to come.

If you are interested, please contact Aaron Crockett via phone at: 800.964.6757 and via email at: info@actodayfoundation.org.
