Starting a nonprofit involves a lot of paperwork…A LOT! There are documents to write and to file. Incorporation documents, internal documents, and 501(c)3 documents. It is much more involved than starting a business.

Do you hire a lawyer? Spend endless hours writing the documents yourself? You just want to get to the part where you can do some good and help some people!

Delivered to you in the form of easily customizable & reusable documents, The Nonprofit Starter Pack is the perfect way to get get started on forming your organization.

Inside, you will have starter documents including Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and more in a format that is easy to customize with your organization’s information.

We’ll provide you with the customizable templates we’ve used to help many others start a nonprofit organization, along with an instructional guide that will teach you how to edit and save the documents for your organization.

“The Non-Profit Starter Pack was a game changer for me!”

“I had a clear vision for the non-profit I wanted to launch, but had no clue how to set it up legally. These step-by-step instructions were easy to understand and the templates were a huge time-saver. I was able to quickly and correctly complete the legal process so I could officially launch the non-profit I’ve been so excited about! I totally recommend buying this kit.”
