This book is helpful in guiding the reader to the resources that are needed to start a non profit. It can be difficult when you have a passion for a particular mission to know what are the best resources to use. This book was helpful in pointing one to good options for all the necessary steps. I would recommend it to anyone who has a dream and wants to move to the next step.
Terrific handbook! This book gave me a clear and easy to understand overview of what is required to fulfill my dream of starting a non-profit. Without a doubt, I will recommend this book to others.
Finally - a one-stop resource that clarifies the steps required to start a charitable organization! I found the sample documents extremely helpful and will recommend this guide to others.
The shortcut of non-fiction writers is to refer readers to other resources instead of telling them "how-to" accomplish the steps they have just outlined. This book does exactly that. The steps are outlined on how to start a non-profit, but how to do that is left to the reader. Incredibly frustrating. Good points are made, but this is nowhere near a comprehensive guide to staring a non-profit. It is an overview of the process. If you purchase this book, you will most certainly need to invest in other resources aside from this book.
