William E. Rattner Nonprofit Start-up Workshop
Now in its 21st year, our Nonprofit Start-up Workshop is designed to help you through the legalities and business issues you'll face in launching your new organization. We help you to complete the necessary state and federal forms and provide a wealth of practical advice including business, governance, and financial matters for nonprofit start-ups.
