I often hear from passionate individuals looking to start their own nonprofit. As a professional grant writer, answering this question is far outside my comfort zone and area of expertise.
Rather than shrug my shoulders, I’ve put together this list of resources for those looking to start a nonprofit:
- My colleague, Bret Wagner, runs an excellent website called Start a Nonprofit Now. His articles and resources are invaluable for start-up and new nonprofits.
- The National Council of Nonprofits has a great page dedicated to starting a nonprofit. They give a step-by-step guide to walk you through the process.
- Board Source has released an extensive guide called Starting a Nonprofit Organization. It’s a must-read for anyone in this position.
I do know a thing or two about grant writing for new nonprofits, specifically. Here are some articles I’ve written on the topic:
- How to find seed money for your nonprofit
- Is it too soon to start the grant writing process?
- What new nonprofits need before hiring a grant writer
- What you can learn from a grant application without writing the grant
- Advice for first time grant seekers
Have any specific questions about grant writing for start-up or new nonprofits? Ask me in the comments!
