Attendees will learn how to get a non-profit off to the right start, which may mean the difference between success and failure. The workshop will review the basic questions regarding the benefits and obligations of incorporation and tax-exempt status, explain the requirements for qualification as a not-for-profit, and the importance of bylaws for any new non-profit. Participants will learn all aspects of the non-profit application process.

The program will review the requirements of charitable purpose and a charitable class, the need to project specific revenues and expenses, and the limitations on lobbying and political activities.
