    Any one that wants to invest in your company can only invest in the for-profit piece - you can not invest in a non-profit business - you can only make donations.

    Your best bet might be to partner with a local church - this way you can possibly use some of their property for your business.

    I would suggest that you start with a for-profit piece and build your business up - then, when you have good market recognition - add in the non-profit piece.  Very hard to do both and when investors see you trying to do both they will run away - they would be afraid that you would take their investment and use it for the non-profit section - thus, they get no return on their money.

    Becareful with the for-profit and not-for-profit thing.  The state governments and the IRS do not go for these types of set ups.  You should pick one and stick with it or you will surely face either not being able to get the non-profit status or have every revenuer looking over your shoulder day in and day out.

    Hi my name is Jessica Michel of a new business idea called JHM's World Full Service Company. This company has a profit and nonprofit sector, educational resources/methods, tutoring, Christian ministries, and a lot of Humanitarianism plus charity and missionary work worldwide. It is a brand new idea started by Jessica H. Michel from Cooper City, Florida and needs lot of business investors for this startup company. If you do invest in this company, you will get a share of the profits made by the company. Job hunters wanted - just need a desire to be financially independent and multi-talented. Multi-talents such as internet marketing, desire to teach any subject to kids, adults, and seniors; missionary/charity work to help the poor and middle class. Recruiting people to this company through social media and other ways, and investing or donating any amount to get a nice company up and running. This opportunity is Not a Scam or a dream that is not attainable. Only through lots of joint efforts can this company become successful. You can also do affiliate marketing and buy/sell advertising space on my future business website and keep in touch through social media and skype.


    Have a wonderful year and please be kind and write me anytime. I am open to any free business opportunity/solutions, suggestion or idea
