Pre-Institute Workshop: Nonprofit Or Not

Still learning the nuts-and-bolts of forming a nonprofit and building a board? Want to make sure that's the most appropriate business structure for your organization? Join us for our Nonprofit Or Not training - a day of workshops and discussions for those developing new organizations. Explore your structure options: Private company? Nonprofit 501(c)(3) ? L3C (Low-profit Limited Liability Company)? Or should you combine a for-profit entity and a nonprofit into a hybrid structure? There will be an emphasis on the basics of starting a nonprofit - with discussions about other options.

The Pre-Institute Workshop | Nonprofit Or Not will be held on Saturday, October 13th from 9am - 5pm with a break for lunch. Lunch is included in your registration. This training will take place 0.6 miles from the Loews Hotel at The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage | 1608 Walnut Street, 18th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19103.
