Have you decided to start a nonprofit, but aren't sure what the first steps are? This 90-minute workshop by Dr. Angela Beard of the Fundraising Academy at City University of Seattle will take you through the administrative, legal and financial tasks necessary to put you in business serving your community. Learn interactively about creating your mission statement, building a board, writing your by-laws and articles of incorporation and much, much more!

This workshop builds on content presented in our 8/17 workshop "Is Starting a Nonprofit Right For You?" Attending that workshop is recommended, but not required. Can't attend live? Contact Library to Business to request the recorded presentation, and learn on your own time!

This is the second workshop in a four-part series exploring what it takes to start a nonprofit and be ready to raise funds to keep the organization sustainable.
