Nonprofit Vs. For-profit Workshop – Virtual via Zoom

December 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Before you jump in, it is important to understand all the complexities surrounding this inspiring and challenging endeavor to help others.

PLEASE NOTE, this workshop will be delivered virtually, as part of the Hillsborough Community College InLab@HCC.

Due to security concerns, we will send a link 24 hours prior and again one hour prior to the workshop start date and time.

This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the differences between a nonprofit and a for-profit business as well as the essential elements to help start and grow a successful nonprofit. Workshop participants will understand the legal and practical considerations of taking a nonprofit start-up from vision to reality to becoming a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization and maintaining the status.
