Okay, so I'm working on starting my own nonprofit organization. It started with me wanting to do a fundraiser, but now I want to do a real organization that does things like fundraisers every two months. Here are some problems I've come across: 1. The place I'm doing a fundraiser for might not want it from my organization 2. Is it true it costs $500 to start a nonprofit? 3.
