The social sector is one of the fastest growing sectors of the workforce since the recession, with over 35,000 new nonprofits starting during the recession years alone. What does it take to start a nonprofit? You know that passion, purpose, and a concrete fundraising plan are all essentials, but there is so much more to do before you’re up and running. We’ve teamed up with the founders of nonprofit startups to share more in depth experiences, such as how they formed their boards and raised their first dollars, in a live webinar.
