Introduction to Grants: Going From Idea to 501( c)3

Should You Turn Your Idea into a Nonprofit?

Every business, every organization, every social movement that makes an impact in the world starts as an idea. As plentiful as ideas are, it can tough to figure out which ideas deserve a plan of implementation and which ideas are best left in your imagination. 

Most founders, whether tech innovators or community activists, finally make the decision to follow up their ideas with action because something about the idea itself tugged at them. The journey of taking your idea and transforming it into a nonprofit organization that serves a greater good can be daunting. 

Bringing a good idea to life requires more than just desire. You will need to have the right people on your team.  You need access to information and upcoming opportunities. You need capital to run your nonprofit organization successfully.

 What This Workshop Will Cover

Going from Idea to 501(c)3 will walk you through the initial steps every nonprofit founder takes to organize and launch a 501(c)3 that is positioned for success.  When you are done with this session, you will  know:
