Nonprofit Start Up Series: Starting a Nonprofit Organization

Learn the basics - legal structures, paperwork and more! Forming a nonprofit organization requires more than passion. You’ll need to have an understanding of financial management, knowledge of legal requirements, managerial skills, trends within the industry, community relations and more. More than anything, you’ll need to learn the basics!

In this workshop you’ll learn about:

  • The basics about various nonprofit entities
  • The different legal structures
  • Required incorporation paperwork 
  • Forming a 501(c)3, L3C, and “B” Corporation as well as the limitations surrounding these entities
  • What you need to know before starting a nonprofit
  • Alternative solutions to starting a nonprofit


This session is part of NEW’s “Nonprofit Start Up Series.”

We highly encourage individuals and organizations to sign up for the series as a whole for two main reasons:

1. Having a full picture of the efforts starting a nonprofit organization entails ensures that the proper resources are devoted to these important preliminary steps.

2. Engaging with other individuals looking to start a nonprofit creates a community of people that can look to one another for guidance, support, connections, and more!
