An excellent resource: one of the challenges of running a not-for-profit is the headaches of the law: registration with the state, liability, etc. The local organization Community Economic Development Law Project offers legal advice to burgeoning entrepreneurs, especially in areas like job-training programs or affordable housing. They are also offering a workshop on creating your not-for-profit business plan on Oct 28th. Think you don't need a business plan? Read on to find out why it might be a good idea and register.
