Course Description:

Environmental groups, religious organizations, social service entities, arts and cultural collectives, health organizations and even organizations that guide us through the process of dying- they all have one thing in common: they are not-for-profit organizations. They are created, developed and they fulfill their missions every day under state and federal guidelines and statutes. In this course you will learn how to set up your own not-for-profit organization, and explore the wider implications of such entities in promoting the social good. Not-for-profit organizations are community engagement engines. They provide a wide variety of career and volunteer opportunities including administrators, artists, architects, lawyers, entrepreneurs, social workers, journalists, marketing specialists, designers and a host of others.   The course will begin with the study of federal 501c3 tax law and how it defines not-for-profits and impacts them vis-à-vis mission, administrative structure, fiscal checks and balances, constituent engagement, etc. Students will also learn the step-by-step process of creating a 501c3 entity including navigating the Department of State: Division of Corporations, the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Taxation. The course will also explore funding (particularly government funding and private foundations) and strategic planning which are both essential elements to not-for-profit health and longevity. Students will connect with not-for-profit and government professionals. The community representatives will include executives, funders, board members, government officials, and others.

I needed to write you the very small observation to say thanks a lot yet again with your unique ideas you have shown on this site. It is really seriously generous with people like you to present freely all that many individuals could possibly have distributed as an e-book to end up making some money for themselves, most importantly seeing that you might well have done it in case you decided. The creative ideas also worked to become a good way to be aware that most people have the identical dreams like mine to realize a whole lot more in respect of this problem. I am sure there are several more pleasant opportunities up front for many who look into your site.
