Is your group a non-profit organization? What are the benefits
for a group that becomes a non-profit? What type of non-profit status would be beneficial for your group?
Five years ago I completed a process of turning our learning
cooperative into a private Christian Academy for home-educated students. This road had many twists and turns but the
end result was well worth the effort! With just a little additional yearly record keeping, we now have the status of
"private school" and this has opened many doors for our families. How would you like to be able to issue accredited
diplomas, get donations from major stores, be able to "write off" portions of your coop expenses, etc.???
On this site I have compiled information about the step-by-step
process of turning your learning cooperative into a non-profit organization. Also included are references and links that will help you in the journey.
I am available to field any questions that support group leaders
may have and will do my best to answer them for you quickly and thoroughly. Please let me know of your own experiences
in establishing your organizations business status so I can share these with others.
Now, onto the exchange of information and ideas! Enjoy!
