Welcome!

Helping others is important to you. You're the one who steps up when there's a need. You dream of doing even more and think starting a nonprofit might be the way. But you have questions.

I'm LaCharla Figgs, and I created Nonprofit Startup Academy to help compassionate ChangeMakers like you.

Use the resources here to learn about U.S. charitable nonprofits and how to create one.

Then if you decide to launch a nonprofit, I offer a self-study course, a group mentoring program, and a consulting engagement to support you and your startup team.

Happy learning!
