So You Want to be a Nonprofit? – Webinar

December 9, 2020 | 12:00 pm  –  1:30 pm

$10 General Admission

Should we become a nonprofit or something else?

This training will cover considerations that community members should be thinking about and planning for before they make the decision to create a nonprofit organization.

In this interactive workshop, participants will receive information that will assist them to:

  • Decide if a nonprofit is the best structure for addressing the community need they have identified; and
  • Understand the process for forming a Washington State nonprofit corporation and/or applying for IRS tax-exempt status.

Topics well cover include:

  • what you need to know before forming a nonprofit (look before you leap);
  • how to assess your readiness to form and sustain a nonprofit;
  • simple steps to take you from your dream to nonprofit with IRS 501 (c) (3) tax- exempt status;
  • helpful hints and pitfalls to avoid when forming your organization; and
  • much more!
