Nonprofit Startup Group Mentoring





You have a Vision: to make a BIG difference in the lives of people in need. And launching a nonprofit is your path to that Vision. I'm LaCharla Figgs, and I want to use my 25+ years of nonprofit experience to make your journey easier and faster.

What Is The Nonprofit Founders Circle?

The Founders Circle is an ongoing group education, mentoring, and implementation program designed to support you and your nonprofit startup team as you...

  • Prepare for startup by gathering data and making key decisions about the the way your program will operate,
  • Launch a U.S. charitable nonprofit by incorporating in your state, applying for federal income tax-exempt status and filing other state forms,
  • Lay the foundation for a high-quality, results-oriented organization by addressing board governance, policy development, financial management, fundraising, and more, and
  • Build your nonprofit leadership skills.

I'll be there with you all the way, teaching, mentoring, and nudging you. All to help you achieve your Big Vision.
