Has anyone on here founded a non profit?
I know it is very similar to forming a LLC with the main difference being the 501(c)3 which grants it a non profit and can accept donations that are deductible for the giver.
Music Project (GMP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization, headquartered in Seattle,
WA and is a global platform for
the preservation and discovery of music.
I found that many of the larger law firms offer pro bono work. One of them in Seattle did all of the 501(c)(3) filing and even helped us fill out the slightly lengthy paperwork.
You should have an ok time getting board members, depending on the purpose of your organization. A lot of executives and people committed to the cause usually jump at the chance for these things. I would find a attorney, an accountant, with the other slots filled by people committed to the cause.
