Keisha will address the following:
- DO register with the Secretary of State as a nonprofit corporation; elect a board, etc.
- DO outline a specific purpose for the funds to be raised—MORE programs; LESS administrative (35%)
- DO register with watchdog organizations i.e., CharityNavigator.org; CharityWatch.org; GuideStar.org
- DON’T be offended if you are refused; it takes time to build trust. Keep receipts and records.
- DO visit The KARS Institute’s website www.karsinstitute.org for a list of resources to assist you
