YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF

YOU’RE A Heart-of-Gold Philanthropist ready to deliver and communicate your vision


The majority of non-profit organizations have noble intentions, lofty goals, and great people, but fall down on execution. They struggle with fundraising, spend too much on administration, and fall woefully short on results. Although many non-profits certainly have issues in common with small businesses, and benefit from similar business services, we have found a few areas that are particularly difficult for non-profits: planning, fundraising, and management.

We love to collaborate and innovate with Philanthropist who change lives through their philanthropic vision and action. Which is why we prepare our clients with all the necessary resource to flourish.

Non-Profit Startup Questions and Considerations:

Here are a few of the questions that we will ask before we begin the Non-Profit Start-up process with you.

  • Why do you want to start a new non-profit?

  • What are the characteristics of the population that you want to serve?

  • Is anyone already doing what you want to do in your area? If so, how are you different from them?

  • How have you determined that there is a need for want you want to do?

  • Do you have experience doing what you want to do or working with a non-profit?

  • Do you have people ready to support you in your endeavor?

Here are a few items to consider before beginning the non-profit startup process:

  • You do not own a Non-profit and therefore you cannot sell it in the future.

  • The Board of Directors has fiscal responsibility for a non-profit.

  • We do not recommend that the organization’s Director/Founder be a member of the Board.

  • The Director works for the Board of Directors and the Board is responsible for setting the Directors salary and reviewing their job performance.

  • You can earn a salary, but remember all funds have to be raised.

  • As a Non-profit Director, you will have to fundraise.

  • You should have some background or expertise in the area that you want your non-profit to serve.

  • Non-Profits are a business and require the ability to not only serve your clients well but the ability to develop, follow and maintain accounting procedures and file ongoing legal paperwork and reports to federal, state and local government agencies and funders.

  • It costs money to incorporate a business. The filing fees can be range from $275 to $1000.
