501 c 3-non proffitt status for the Thomas Hovatter Lymphedema Foundation

  • Hi, does anyone know how  I  can get help setting up 501 c 3 for my husband's lymphedema foundation?  We really need to get this done so we can do more fundraisers and interviews.

    Can someone give me advice about who to talk to and what we need to do? I have talked to an accountant but he couldn't help us and we were told that it was very expensive and there was a lot of paperwork involved.           


    Can someone please help me, this is very dear to my heart. In my husband's memory, Patti Graybeal and I have fundraisers to help lymphedema patients get the treatment that they need, we many events and interviews with television and radio but it would be better if we had 501 c 3, 

    Thank you and God Bless
