Any advice or resources for individuals starting a non-profit business?
I want to start a non-profit business and I am trying to find resources that offer advice and assistance with the beginning stages of starting a non-profit business.
The best place to start is IRS.gov... review and understand the IRS requirements and what a non-profit status means. Next, what is your focus? Is it needed in the community? Are you sure you are not duplicating current services? For training in non-profit management, check with your local colleges or universities. There are classes and designations you can earn. I have both strategic planning for non-profits and non-profit management certifications for the Helen Bader Institute for Non-Profit Management from the University of WI - Milwaukee. While I have not looked recently, there may also be online courses available.
