Jill M. Morris,  Nonprofit Development Expert

Steve Harvey (actor, comedian, TV host, radio host, and author) annual earnings total to about $50 million (his net worth is $220 million).  Each year, the IRS allows Steve to contribute up to 30% of his earnings to charitable causes without having to pay taxes on those earnings.  Steve chooses to contribute to his own charity, The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation.  Of that 30 percent that Steve contributes to his private foundation, the IRS only requires him to use a small portion of it for charitable activities---but we all know that Steve does a lot to impact people for the better.  So, what happens to the rest of the contributions to his private foundation?

Client Testimonials


"We were referred to Jill in 2012.  We had a vision to give back to pregnant teens and young moms since we were both young, single moms at one time.  At the initial meeting Jill explained her approach in turning an idea into an actionable mission.  She taught us how to strategically plan and execute creating our brand, developing a kick-butt board, developing unique programs that are needed in the area we wanted to serve, establishing lucrative partnerships, and securing funding.  Shortly after we formed our nonprofit we applied and received 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, which allowed us to establish a partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools.  Since our launch almost 10 years ago our nonprofit, Lean On Us Unity, has spiraled into a multi-million dollar empire.  In addition to all of the things we are still gleaning from Jill, we are a well-established venture that started with an IDEA.  Jill is the best out there when it comes to developing nonprofits!!"  

--Priscilla Ofosu, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Lean On Us Unity


"As a young, single mom it is imperative that I set an example for my son.  I got my education, secured a career, building a digital business, purchasing my first home, and now creating a legacy of giving back that will pass down to my son's grandkids.  It's more than about building wealth for me.  It's being a positive influence on my son and instilling core values in him, so that he does not have to look outside of our home for inspiration and validation. THANK YOU JILL! Easy, breezy instructions."
