Our community has many compassionate, motivated people who think about how they can address society's problems. One of the options is to start a tax exempt nonprofit organization. If you're considering founding your own nonprofit, this is the class for you. We'll cover what a nonprofit is, what alternatives there are for creating social good, and the steps to take before you finalize your decision.

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