My Mission

I'm LaCharla Figgs, founder of Nonprofit Startup Academy.

I've been a nonprofit leader and consultant for a combined 30 years. My mission is to serve as a catalyst and mentor to compassionate ChangeMakers so that they create life-transforming programs for people in need.

I envision a world in which no one has to look very far for the help they need to live healthy, joyful, and productive lives.

I hate to see people suffer, and I believe God has called and equipped many of us, as ordinary individuals, to bring extraordinary solutions into the world.

My goal is ;to be a "multiplier," to help ChangeMakers transform the lives of a multitude of people.

Your Big Vision

Even with all our blessings here in the U.S., many people struggle to make life work. Fortunately, compassionate people like you and the organizations they create make a big difference every single day.

I believe you're here because you have a Big Vision for helping people and want to start a nonprofit. One that will be life-transforming for people in need.

You can't see people in need without wanting to help, but you want to help more than a handful of people at a time. You're hoping a nonprofit can help you do that.

But...

...you haven't started one yet.

When it comes to starting that nonprofit, it can be hard to find the time because your schedule is already full. Or maybe you don't know how to take the first step. Or, maybe the whole thing is pretty scary.

So you tell yourself you'll "get around to it" one day. And while you're thinking about it, weeks, months--maybe years pass by.

But your Vision is still there, whispering in the background. (I know; I've been there.)

Bring Your Big Vision to Life!

Dreams and Visions are important, but until we get to work, they remain dreams and visions. The "I don't knows" and "what ifs" can hold us back if we let them.

But founders of grassroots movements and charitable nonprofits have pushed through all that to make a difference in the world. And I believe you can, too.

So if you're ready, I can help you start building a life-changing nonprofit through these 3 stages:

PLAN IT

Clarify your Big Vision, learn about the industry, and create a startup plan.

CREATE IT

Incorporate, register to raise funds in your state, and seek tax-exempt status.

GROW IT

Start operating, craft your foundation, and build your nonprofit leadership skills.

I offer classes, workshops, coaching, group mentoring, and a done-for-you consulting engagement. All to help you start from scratch and work step-by-step to create an organization that makes a real difference in the world.

Take a look at the stages below or use the main menu to learn more about my programs. If you have questions, Contact Me. I'd love to partner with you in bringing your Big Vision to life!

A Bit About Me

Hello, I'm LaCharla Figgs. I created Nonprofit Startup Academy to help compassionate ChangeMakers launch U.S. nonprofits.

I love supporting my clients, students , and members because they refuse to wait around for "someone somewhere" to help others. They're ready to change the world for Good, and they're ready to do it NOW!

I've spent the past 25-plus years supporting nonprofits. As a trainer, facilitator, leadership coach, author, grantmaker, consultant, and more.

One of my FAVORITE roles, though, is helping Visionaries launch charitable nonprofits.

These highly-focused folk are excited and ready to change the world. And I love using my experience to make their journey easier and less stressful.

If you're a Visionary, I think I know a little something about you. You're ready to serve more hurting people NOW. And you have ZERO patience for planning, "process," and paperwork-even though you know you'll have to face it to start a nonprofit.

That's ok, because that's what I'm good at.

I created this program to lend you my strengths. To ease the frustration of the paperwork, planning, and process so you can get to your Vision faster and with less frustration.

Starting a nonprofit means wading into new territory. My job is to be your trainer and mentor along the way. To help you see what's ahead. To steer you away from pitfalls. And help you navigate the frustrations that can pop up.

You'll see that I'm constantly teaching and sharing insights with you. Because having a nonprofit on paper is not enough. You need the skills and confidence to lead your nonprofit well.

As a nonprofit leader, you have to invest in your skills and become a life-long learner. I hope you'll join me here and make Nonprofit Startup Academy one of your learning resources.
