Form Your Own Nonprofit!

This all day workshop is designed for individuals who are ready to start their own nonprofit organization. We will give you the tools you need and we will walk you through the steps necessary to form your own nonprofit organization.

Together we will cover the following items:
-Nonprofit qualification criteria at both the state and federal level;
-Forming a corporation in the state of California;
-Applying for tax-exempt status with the IRS (most people mess up this step); and
-Complying with nonprofit reporting requirements after your business is formed.

The Wilkerson Law Office will NOT form your nonprofit for you, but we will guide you through the process so that you can do it legally and correctly. When you leave for the day your business will be 85% formed. It will be up to you to put the finishing touches on your paperwork and mail the documents to the right entities.

The cost of attendance is $699 per organization and each organization can bring up to 4 team members. We want to give every organization personalized attention so attendance is capped at 6 organization attendees.

Many law firms charge between $3000-5000 to form a nonprofit for you. Because budget is a concern for many aspiring nonprofit organizations, we’re offering the best of both worlds; an attorney-led workshop at a fraction of the price.

What you need to bring:
-A computer;
-Your co-founders; and
-Snacks to keep you awake!

We will break for lunch and there are many nearby restaurants within walking distance.
Get excited! Your new nonprofit is just one workshop away!
