How to Start a Nonprofit / Charity | Intro Program
So you’ve been toying with the idea of one day starting a charity/nonprofit/social enterprise or aid organisation?
Maybe you’re longing for a change out of your existing career to doing something that inspires you with meaning?
Maybe you look around you at some of the major social, environmental or humanitarian issues rife in the world and eager to do something more about them?
Sadly many organisations setup to do good don’t survive long, or if they do, they nearly achieve a fraction of the impact that is really needed. Why? Because they weren’t built in the right way, they were launched with the right foundation, and ultimately the founder didn’t have enough of the crucial knowledge, understanding and skillset required. This course addresses that exact issue.
