Starting a new nonprofit is 10% inspiration, 90% perspiration. Many people when starting out have a great idea, but getting a nonprofit organization off the ground takes time, energy, and legal and business know how. Learn about what you need to think about moving forward: business model, charitable purpose, operations, donations, government filing, board of directors, members, volunteers, and more.
