Start Up for Success Workbook
A Step-by-Step Workbook for Planning, Founding, and Initiating a New 501(c)(3) Nonprofit
This electronic (downloadable) workbook is designed to be an interactive guide that helps you solidify your thinking, ideas, and actions around your specific concept. This is not a resource that will educate you on the depth and breadth of nonprofits, the history of nonprofits, or why nonprofits are important to our society. The information is focused on guiding you through your own process, informed by what you need to know about nonprofits, the 501(c)(3) legal structure, and the process of incorporation.
After completing this workbook and the process it entails, you should have a clear sense of whether starting a nonprofit is the right choice for you. If it is, you will know exactly how to go about organizing your effort, utilizing planning and management best practices, and completing the legal process of incorporating. You will have guidance on the process of early start-up implementation. You will have access to tools and resources which will serve you throughout your start up journey and beyond. And you will have the confidence that comes from knowing you’ve taken the time and put in the effort to give your organization the best chance of success.
