Organization help?!?

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. My mom says I need to start a bank account for it so I don't have money lying around the house. Would people take me seriously if I had a bank account especially for this? Thanks!

The Government has a website where you can find this out. Google. You can also call other Non-Profits and find someone who is interested in helping you. Good Luck and God Bless. "The least you do for your brother, is the least you do for Me."
