starting a nonprofit

Every day, individuals like you are inspired to start a nonprofit to positively change lives and improve communities.  Creating and sustaining a nonprofit is not easy, we applaud your enthusiasm. The purpose of this guide is to provide you with some initial considerations before forming a nonprofit and to offer some steps and resources in the process of forming a nonprofit. There are multiple hyperlinks throughout this document that will take you to specific websites with more information.    

It is important to note that a nonprofit is different from a business in that nonprofits do not have owners. They are formed for the benefit of society and are governed by a volunteer board of directors. If you are the founder of a nonprofit, this is an important aspect to understand.  The Wyoming Nonprofit Network does not provide one-on-one assistance to start a nonprofit. We do freely provide information and resources in this guide to help you. As noted in this guide, we encourage you to seek professional guidance from an attorney and/or accountant with specific experience and expertise in nonprofits.
