Start a nonprofit without tearing your hair out
Have you ever thought about starting a nonprofit, but weren’t sure what it would require? What are the things you need to set up, what regulations do you need to know to get started? Do you need a board? What do you need to start fundraising? What can you do to build an inclusive organization that values diversity from the beginning? How do you build an organization that stays flexible as it grows? We are two nonprofit veterans who’ve worked behind the scenes for many years to make sure our organizations are strong, well-managed, and diverse. We will share the basics on how to get started and avoid common pitfalls.
