About Our Firm
Audrey’s passion for helping people start their own nonprofit organizations came from adversity.
She started her nonprofit, Revolution Leadership, Inc., as a college student. Although she had big dreams for the organization – she couldn’t seem to get grants or donations to help grow the organization.
She paid for the expenses of the nonprofit out of her own pocket from her summer internships and was only able to host smaller programs due to limited budget.
Things changed when began studying nonprofit law while in law school. She learned strategies that major law firms used when forming nonprofits for their clients and studied the best practices of the most successful nonprofits. She realized that due to the way her nonprofit was structured – she was missing out on funding opportunities.
Using her newfound legal knowledge, she obtained 501c3 tax-exempt status and grew her nonprofit into an organization that serves 1,683 students and has awarded 34 college scholarships.
As a result, Revolution Leadership® receives major grants from Wells Fargo®, Enterprise® as well as corporate sponsorships from Wal-mart®, Olive Garden® and Chick-fil-A®.
She graduated from law school and started Chisholm Law Firm, LLC – a firm that would help others form nonprofits that would be eligible for major grant funding.
