How to Start, Run & Grow a Successful Nonprofit Organization: DIY Startup Guide to 501 C(3) Nonprofit Charitable Organization for All 50 States & DC

This is one of the most comprehensive guides you will find on how to start, run and grow a 501© nonprofit organization. I worked 23 years as a consultant for many small to medium size nonprofit organizations. My primary job was to show them the actual step-by-step process on how to open such charitable organizations properly and legally.

Many nonprofit organizations run into various legal and tax problems if and when they don’t take the right steps when opening and filling their paperwork with their state and Federal government. It is not rocket science, but there are few minor details that you have to know and follow to avoid significant setbacks and issues in the future.

In this guide, I cover the basics of starting a nonprofit organization (NPO). I show you a detailed step-by-step process of fulfilling each and every requirement by your state and the federal government. I also added provisions for all 50 US states and for the District of Columbia.

Please look through the table of contents before hitting the “Buy” Button to make sure I covered the information you are looking for.

At a glance, this is what I covered in this guide:

  • What is a nonprofit
  • Types of nonprofit entities
  • Why you should start a nonprofit
  • For-profit vs. nonprofit
  • Advantages & disadvantages of starting a nonprofit
  • The startup checklist
  • Establishing the bylaws
  • How to develop a conflict of interest policy
  • Filing articles of incorporation
  • Legal requirements
  • How to actually become tax exempt
  • Building the staff
  • Nonprofit governance
  • Officers/board of directors
  • CEO & executive directors
  • Staff and volunteers
  • Classifying employees
  • How to recruit volunteers
  • How to pay your employees
  • Fundraising basics
  • Fundraising compliance
  • Online fundraising
  • Registration requirements, applications, exemptions, and renewal
  • Professional fundraising
  • Co-venture and cause Marketing
  • Charitable gaming licensing and permits
  • How to host gaming events
  • Renewing gaming license

From good to great.

Good and hopeful compare to others which discorage you to go for a NFPO it needs More details in some parts for a do it your self. The book at least encorege me to Keep going others scare you and tells you to get the ir courses or consultation. It can get better to Be great. The part which no one helps is in the needed nearly perfecto articles of incorporation and the needed perfecto bylaws. Can some one explain better and what exactly have to be there and what not. For DIYselfers.

Detailed Information

Great job and thank you for sharing form your experience, knowledge and in-depth research. My only suggestion and recommendation is if it’s possible to please include a accompanying pdf guide to the audible version so it’s easy to find the info for each state on registration.

State by state requirements For Audio

I loved this book, it’s was extremely informative! I learned more in 1 hour of listening about starting a Non Profit than I have throughout my business degree program! The only thing I didn’t like fir audio book listening was the fact that all the different state requirements were lumped together in one chapter at the end and I would have to listen to them all before locating my state. I suggest 1 chapter per state for audio. Otherwise awesomely done.
