"The time is always right to do what is right."

Martin Luther King Jr.

Should you create a new nonprofit?

Nonprofits require dedication, determination, money and a will to resolve an issue.   While not terribly expensive to create, a nonprofit’s yearly costs frequently are more than expected.  One such expense, acquiring Board of Directors Insurance, protects the board from errors and omissions.  The main goal of every nonprofit created is to work to resolve an issue.  Consider these questions before moving forward:

  • Might joining an established nonprofit addressing the same issue better utilize your time and efforts?
  • Might your fund raising efforts cover the cost of the insurance, but not allow you to address the issue

If "No" answers both questions, then forming a new nonprofit might offer a solution. Sandi Consulting helps you make an informed decision about moving forward, then takes you through the entire process from start to finish.
