Steps to Starting a Maine Nonprofit (Partner Event)

March 12, 2019, 2pm-5pm


This is a FREE workshop co-hosted by MANP and SCORE Maine.

The process for transforming an idea into an operating organization can be complicated. This session will help those with a passion for creating change to refine their vision, mission and approach, and understand the practical steps necessary to turn that vision into reality. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the step-by-step process for incorporating and applying for tax-exempt status. Please note that this session does not include legal advice.

Through this session, participants will:
  • Have increased awareness of alternatives and personal readiness.
  • Clarify their vision/purpose.
  • Have increased awareness of the steps to creating a nonprofit corporation and pursuing tax-exempt status.

Who Should Attend:
Those interested in starting a nonprofit in Maine, but who have not yet filed Form 1023 (the Application for Recognition of Exemption).
