Starting a nonprofit organization can be daunting, with so many legal requirements and forms and filings, in addition to just getting the organization’s activities up and running. It can leave a founder feeling isolated and uncertain which way to jump next.
But founders don’t have to go it alone any longer. Join the Nonprofit Start-up Group, a new free monthly program from the Legal Center for Nonprofits, starting Wednesday, February 12, at 6:00 pm. Get started networking with other nonprofit founders, share information and experience, and support each other. Whether you’ve already formed a nonprofit, joined the board of a newly formed nonprofit, or simply want to find out more about what’s involved, the Nonprofit Start-up Group is the place to meet others who have been through the experience of starting a nonprofit organization.
At this first meeting, attendees will plan the schedule for future meetings. This is an information and networking event; no legal advice specific to attendees’ situations will be given.
The group’s facilitator is Elizabeth Pollin, Esq., an attorney, BCC instructor, and small business woman who is also a founding board member of the Youth Investment Foundation, Inc.
The Nonprofit Start-up Group will meet at the Legal Center for Nonprofits office inside the Inter-Church Council house at 412 County Street, New Bedford. Preregistration is recommended. Contact Linnea Michel, Esq., at (508) 264-5996 or by email to Linnea@LegalCenterforNonprofits.org, for information or to preregister.
