Most people think I want a Non Profit. Or if only I had grant money- then I would be set. Unfortunately, that is not the
complete story and it does not work that easy!
You must be dedicated to start a Non Profit; there is work that has to be done BEFORE you start receiving grant money.
I am going to make the steps as simple as possible for you on how to start a Non Profit and then I will answer some questions that everyone wants to know the answer too.
Non Profits do the following:
1. How soon will I be able to find and receive grant money?
a. Researching for a grant is a FULL TIME job! It is something you must do every day.
b. Once you find a grant- you must apply and IF you are award the grant money- it is allocated to do specific things. IT IS NOT YOURS TO SPEND FREELY!
2. How much money will I receive from a grant to pay myself?
a. It depends on the grant and if salary is allowed. When you apply for a grant it will give you GREAT detail on how they want you to spend THEIR MONEY.
3. Can someone guarantee me that I will be awarded a grant?
a. NO. You are competing with other organizations. The best thing you can do is to
follow their instructions and pay attention to every detail.
4. How do I really get started?
a. Easy- follow the steps I gave above. OR
b. Google- How to Start a Non Profit. You can include the state you are living in to give you the guidelines for that
So I have given some very basic steps on how to get started and what to do.

You think you’re ready? You’ve been doing this for a while and perhaps you have paying customers and things are going
great. Before you JUMP into your business FULL TIME let’s look at some of the questions
1. How much are you making as a percentage of your day job?
2. How is the income trending from your small business? Is it a steady income or sporadic?
Deciding when to quit your day job is a serious decision and there any many factors that need to be considered before you make that JUMP.
One of the things to look at is how much are you making as a percentage of your day job? For example do you make $60,000 (yr.) at your present employment and income from your business is equal to $30,000 a year?
This would require a serious life style change and a big sacrifice. Or perhaps you make $35,000 a year and the
income from your business is $40,000. It would seem as if everything would be great.
Here are some more questions for you BEFORE you tell your company exactly what you think:
1. Are you customers regular? And dependable?
2. Is your income residual? Meaning if you’re not actively selling something will you still have income from your product or service?
3. Will you be able to pay your bills from your business?
If you can answer YES to all of these questions- CONGRATULATIONS you are on your way.
However, if you are like most startups your customer base is not solid just yet; at best you have a few clients perhaps every 6 to 8 months.
Starting your own business of nonprofit can be an extremely exciting time nonetheless; you want to be careful about how soon you quit your day job to pursue your business full time.
I love to share information and make sure everyone can make an informed decision. If you are just not sure where to go from here or if you are wondering exactly what do I need to do about those sporadic clients- contact

The difference between the two really depends on the scope of services that you want to offer and how you want to offer them. I am going to make this as SIMPLE as possible!
Nonprofit does not earn money (profits) for its owners. ALL MONEY (profit) earned by or donated to the organization MUST be used in pursing the organization’s objectives. A nonprofit usually provides a public service.
An important thing to remember about nonprofit organizations is that no one can guarantee you grant money unless they are the ones actually giving you the money. A very SIMPLE example of how it works is this:
1. Find a grant
2. Following the instructions and do exactly what the grantees is asking for
3. Submit your documentation
4. WAIT on a response
That’s it! The final decision is up to the grantor! No one can promise you that your grant proposal will be approved. I made that mistake and spent well over $1500.00 for a packet and at the end of the program I was left with a stack
of paper and no grant money.
IF you want your nonprofit to solely depend on grant money you will need someone FULLTIME to research for grants it is not just a one-time thing!
Establishing a nonprofit will take a great deal of detail worked and being very descriptive on the services that you want to offer to your community. There are fees associated with creating a nonprofit; the fee amount depends on the
state that you live in.
For profit business is just the opposite. If you want to be a sole entrepreneur then you are finished with establishing your business. What does that mean, it means that you have chosen not to incorporate, form a partnership, or become a LLC. You have chosen to be your only employee! Can you change this status after your business has grown absolutely!
Once you change the status of your for profit organization there are fees associated with filing the necessary documents.
These are just some very basic difference between a nonprofit and for profit organizations.

Entrepreneurship is an amazing thing. It is time consuming, requires dedication and sacrifice AND it requires money!
First, let me start by just stating some obvious facts:
· You cannot receive money for a business – IF YOU NEVER SET UP A BUSINESS
· Money is NOT going to drop out of the sky into your lap
· Finding a grant is HARD work and it doesn’t stop with just one – you have to keep looking
Now that I have your attention let me explain a few things: Before you can start making money you do have to have some type of structure in place to receive the money you want to make.
Would you give money to someone who asked for it but had no proof that they were actually a legal business?
I always get a question that starts out…I want you to find me a grant to open my business. My answer will always be absolutely! However, are you willing to do the work and pay the fees that it cost to set up a non-profit? If
the answer is YES then we have a great starting point. If the answer is fees? Work? Then we need to start at the beginning!
No one can promise you that they will get receive grant money UNLESS they are actually giving you the money!
If you have been trying to do this on your own and it’s been over a year and still no progress then you need to contact Waddell Consulting Services!
Let me take a look at what has already been established and give you some direction on where you need to go. OR if you just have the ideas and the thought of not having money has stopped you from going any further…
