Introducing the Map of Nonprofit Startup Resources by State

August 30, 2011

(Stephen Sherman is a reference librarian at the Foundation Center-Atlanta, on whose blog this post originally appeared.)

Have an idea for a nonprofit but not sure where to begin? We've collected the best resources from organizations across the country and listed them in one place to help you get your nonprofit off on the right foot. Our new Map of Nonprofit Startup Resources by State provides links to helpful resources such as state associations, legal support organizations, and government agencies that provide information on forming a nonprofit in all fifty states and U.S. territories. Find out where to go to incorporate, where to register before raising funds, and which organizations offer management or technical assistance for nonprofits in your area.

And don't forget about our other resources on starting a nonprofit:

Establishing a Nonprofit Organization
This free tutorial will show you how to establish a nonprofit organization, step by step.

Webinar Series for Nonprofit Startup Organizations
Recordings of our special five-part webinar series on the legal, financial, and management issues of starting a nonprofit.

Before You Seek a Grant: A Checklist for New Nonprofits
Offered as in-person training or an online webinar, this free class shares the characteristics of effective nonprofits and will help you assess whether your organization is ready to approach foundations for funding.

Does your organization provide services for new nonprofit organizations? Contact us to be considered for inclusion in our list. Listings are limited to nonprofit organizations, government agencies, or organizations that provide substantial resources free of charge.
