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. And you feel deep compassion for them.
But you're ready to go beyond compassion. You want to do more-- to make a lasting difference in the lives of struggling people.
You have a Big Vision, and you're wondering about the best way to achieve it.
Can you see yourself offering life-transforming support to people in need? Getting up every day knowing you're making a difference in someone's life?
Maybe you can see it, but you don't know where to start. Maybe all you do know is you're tired of putting off your Vision until "someday."
If starting a charitable nonprofit sounds like the way to achieve your Vision, you're in good company. Thousands of nonprofits were started by people just like you. People who had Vision and Passion. People who couldn't rest until they'd made a Big Difference in the world.
If you're ready to start your journey, let me help you clarify your Vision. Then, let's transform that beautiful Vision into a charitable nonprofit that has the power to change the world for Good.
I offer classes, workshops, group mentoring, and more to support you-- wherever you are on your journey to starting a U.S. charitable nonprofit. Here are some of those resources...

Here's How I Can Help
Meet The Founder
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.
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.
