Florida Nonprofits hosts “How to Start a Nonprofit Organization” the first Friday of each month.

The purpose of this course is to provide the information you need to know before launching a nonprofit organization including 32 points to consider before you decide to become a nonprofit, and what type of nonprofit best fits your need. Find out what you have to do if you want to collect charitable donations.  Also covered is how to do IRS and State of Florida filing, which is also applicable for those nonprofits that are up and running, but need further guidance. The class is devoted to helping you start a nonprofit organization and will also discuss the eleven areas of nonprofit management to master for success.

Classes are held the first Friday of each month from 10:00 am to approximately 11:30 am (times are flexible d to accommodate your schedule).  Classes may also be scheduled at your convenience and can be taken remotely upon request.  Bring the information on your start-up organization for discussion.
