The Things You Gotta' Do to Start a Nonprofit Organization
The Checklist Project of The Nonprofit Coordinating Committee of New York (NPCC)
Many people who think about starting a nonprofit are unaware that they will be starting a small business with all the needs that a successful business entails.
While the primary purpose to be accomplished by a nonprofit is its mission -- whether it is feeding the disabled or putting on theater performances -- anyone who forms a nonprofit will soon realize that they are also running a business and in order to achieve their mission they must run their business well.
These needs range from the concrete -- setting up financial systems, payroll and opening a bank account; hiring staff and preparing a personnel manual; buying the right kinds of insurance -- to the conceptual -- organizational structure, mission statements, long-range planning, evaluation, etc.
