Resources on Getting Started

TSNE often receives phone calls asking for advice on starting a nonprofit. While this is not an area in which we specialize, there are several excellent resources available that can help you get started and find someone who does. Before you begin this process, it is important to research the niche that your organization will fill to ensure that there is an unmet demand for your service. If you are unsure about the necessity of forming an entirely new non-profit organization, there are alternatives to consider, such as collaboration with an existing organization or fiscal sponsorship, a service which TSNE does provide.
