I'm LaCharla Figgs, founder of Nonprofit Startup Academy. We don't have to look far to see that people need help. No matter the age, gender, or location, people are hurting and looking for answers.
I believe you're here because you feel deep compassion for struggling people. But you want to go beyond compassion and make a lasting difference in their lives.
I suspect that at the end of your day, in those quiet moments, your Vision is like an insistent voice, urging you to not give up on it. You can see yourself living out your Vision.
You're not there yet. Maybe you don't see a way to add nonprofit startup to your busy life. Maybe you don't know how to go from having a Vision to running a nonprofit. And maybe this whole thing is as scary as it is exciting.
Still, you refuse to give up on it!
While you're considering all these things, though, weeks and months--maybe years are passing.
Nothing Will Change Until You Act
Dreams and Visions are important, but change requires ACTION.
When you're ready to start your journey, you'll find several programs here that can help you get to work.
No need to worry if you don't understand all the moving parts right now. A life-changing nonprofit should be around for a long time. So why not take the time to learn as you build it and take one manageable step at a time?
I offer programs, that can help you do that in three stages:
- First, plan the startup nonprofit step-by-step. (No more fuzzy concepts!)
- Then create a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation. (It's getting real now!)
- Finally, launch the program, build the organization's foundation, and develop nonprofit leadership skills. (This is the not-so-exciting-but-totally-necessary stuff.)
How Does It Work?
I offer courses and coaching programs to help you learn about the "moving parts" of starting a nonprofit in the U.S., and to help you create your organization.
For those who have created a nonprofit already, I offer a group mentoring program. Through lessons and live coaching, members learn how to comply with state and federal regs, strengthen their operations, and grow as nonprofit leaders.
Finally, if startup paperwork is not your cup of tea, I also provide done-for-you services so you can skip the paperwork and get on with organization building.
