    Helpful Advice for Non-Profit Entrepreneurs

    Newport Beach Law Firm

    Giving to charity can be a particularly taxing activity even when you’re doing it for all the right reasons. Whether it’s picking the right charity or the right assets to give, it can be a daunting task. If you haven’t found just the right charity, perhaps you should consider starting one yourself.

    Starting a charity is no walk in the park. Worthwhile goals are rarely reached without a bit of elbow grease. Still, for many business-savvy philanthropists, it’s not enough to think solely about the goal and the gift; you’ve got to be the leading edge as well.

    If your current challenge has been bested or if you’re moving onto a second career, there are few things that can beat the sensation of creating a thriving charity. That being said, you may need some planning and advice. Why? A charity is essentially a business (with extra effort and sans profit).

    Never fear. A recent article in Forbes titled “How To Start A Charity” can help jumpstart the process and get your charity up and running.

    Be sure to engage in competent legal and tax counsel before you leap. There are plenty of landmines awaiting the unwary that could impede on good your intentions.

    Contact Meier Law Firm today and learn how we can help you with starting a charity.
