Welcome to the course!

Starting a nonprofit 501(c)(3) is not a decision to be taken lightly. There are additional rules and regulations that are imposed on the nonprofit tax-exempt organization because it is a public organization that may receive public funding to further a charitable mission.

This training course was written to provide accurate information surrounding the activities that the nonprofit 501(c)(3) is and is not allowed to engage in.
