Building a Nonprofit Family Life Education Business
Professionals working with families and children understand the value in making resources relevant and accessible to the community in which they serve. Achieving a nonprofit, organizational status provides an opportunity to form a business that clearly focuses on the services families in the community need, while also allowing an opportunity to focus on the expertise and interests of the professional. However, the logistics of starting one’s own nonprofit business can be overwhelming. There are many decisions to make, and documents to be completed.
Utilizing the presenter's own nonprofit experiences, this webinar will provide an overview of the fundamentals needed to form a nonprofit business or organization. Attendees will be guided on how to write a mission statement, given steps for developing a nonprofit organization focused on providing services to families, and learn tips on how to become financially stable using charitable donations. Attendees will also be provided with information on how to establish articles and bylaws, create a managing board, and develop a basic budget.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the differences between for-profit and nonprofit entities
- Form components of a nonprofit including bylaws, board roles, conflict of policy, and budget
- Apply for a nonprofit status from the federal government
Approved for 1 hour of CFLE continuing education credit.
