Philanthropy Educators assists you through the process of creating your nonprofit/charitable organization.
"You will receive careful attention and consult throughout
the startup process of your passion project and beyond."
Jerry will spend the time needed to establish if you are certain that forming a charitable organization is right for you and if there is a definite need for the service and support that you will be providing to those that you intend on serving. Recreating the proverbial "wheel" is never the best idea when it comes to the nonprofit sector. It is important to understand this and how to best collaborate with other existing 501(c)(3) organizations.
Consult and guidance is also available to those who wish to make financial contributions to the philanthropic sector, but aren't sure what organiztion(s) they could and should support. It is important to clearly understand and establish what your passion is for making a difference; making sure that your time, money and effort are being directed to charitable organizations that operate on the highest principles of governance and compliance standards within the sector.

Miracles For Heroes
The work that the Miracles do for those who have served and still serve in our military is of the utmost importance to us. When we needed to setup our official nonprofit, Miracles For Heroes, we reached out to Jerry, as we were familiar with his knowledge and vast experience working within the nonprofit sector. He was professional, efficient and forthright with what it meant to form our charitible organization. He knew exactly what it took to commuunicate with the IRS and successfully expedite our application. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to start a nonprofit or need any type of guidance with your nonprofit.

Miracles For Heroes
I highly recommend Jerry Heikens as a nonprofit specialist and expert in his field! Jerry founded and successfully ran Phoenix Philanthropists, which still provides opportunites to volunteers in the Phoenix community and in turn provides talented and vetted volunteers to organizations in need of support. His experience starting and running a successful nonprofit, coupled with his expertise in setting up nonprofit organizations for other individuals makes him uniquely qualified in his field. Not only does Jerry assist in the crucial and precise startup of the organizations, he is also a valuable resource for these individuals regarding education, networking and community involvement.
