What’s Happening

  • There are 1.5 million nonprofits in the United States. Washington typically sees 4,000 new nonprofits formed each year. How do we make sure people have what they need to think about the difference they want to make and the structure best suited to moving forward?  With support from the Office of the Secretary of State, Washington Nonprofits worked with 501 Commons and Wayfind to produce a new toolkit for people wanting to turn an idea into an organization. To download the free toolkit, visit Starting a Nonprofit on the Washington Nonprofit Institute. There’s also an interactive graphic to find what you need to move forward and a document vault of templates and sample documents.
