Great Free Resource for Non-Profit Formation

“No Act of Kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted” – Aesop.  Technology platforms, such as Indiegogo & GiveForward, has made it easier to give.

In some cases, a person may decide to form a non-profit to address a cause that may be personal to them.  Recently, President Obama announced the formation of a public-private foundation to help address issues affecting those who may feel disenfranchised.  Some of my friends and I formed a non-profit to raise awareness of societal issues through sports.

During the formation process, I found several online resources that could help people aspiring to form their own charity.  One such resource is the Digital Media Law Project, found at  On its website, you can find links to various guides for non-profit formation. I found the guides detailed with links to the various federal and state regulation websites.

As always, you should seek legal counsel when looking to form any enterprise, including a non-profit. And remember kindness and love are powerful agents for positive change.
