Any philanthropists or NPO-supporting people out there? Newcomer Introduction

    I've always had the idea making lots of money and living below my means so that I can give to others, One thing I've really started to enjoy is inventing and supporting non-profits. To one extent it's very satisfying, but I just wish I knew of other people who think the same way I do.

    So my question is: Are there any other people on this website that have similar views and values?

    I work for a NPO. I have always chosen to work for NPO's. I know it sounds silly taking into account the site I'm on but money really isnt everything...I dont think I could get as much satisfaction from my career as I do now had I been working in a "for profit". Aside from working for an NPO I also do some work with inner city youth and have been have to establish a partnership with my NPO to sponsor girls for career day! It's truly great & rewarding!

    I'm on the board in charge of Finance of a NPO. It's a recent start up, so it's not keeping me busy enough to feel satisfied. Crossing my fingers that it will grow and help many soon.

    Hello, I'm new here and was looking through the site when I found this thread. I've worked for NPOs and created one myself in the past. The business plan I'm currently developing will create a non-profit foundation in addition to five divisions, all under an umbrella incorporation. The key to any non-profit is to be passionate, different, and productive. You'll need to write a business plan. Otherwise, the paperwork to create the NPO is easy, cheap, and often available online through your state's Secretary of State website. I suggest you engage an attorney and CPA as early as possible. Do a search for the different areas I've mentioned and visit some national NGO websites to get a feel for their program activites and administrative functions. I hope this helps. Good luck! All the Best, Pentora
