Welcome to NFP Headquarters, your site for great information and
tools for people working with and for charities and not-for-profits.
We have a lot of high quality content and great tools in the works, but for now we are focusing on rolling out our pilot course on how to set up a not-for-profit organisation or charity.
By the end of this four week pilot you will: * know more about the wonderful charity and social sector you are looking to be a part of; * know the difference between a not-for-profit, a charity and a social enterprise and which one is for you; * be able to speak the charity lingo like a pro; * be able to clearly state the purpose of your organisation and understand why purpose is so powerful and important; * be much more clear on whether you need to establish a new organisation at all in order to further your passion and purpose; and * know the steps to follow to set up your organisation and to become a registered charity.
If you are thinking of establishing a not-for-profit organisation or charity, or even if you are running one already, it is important to know the answer to the question of what a charity actually is. The answer might surprise you and is more complicated than people first think.
When you are setting up a new charity or not-for-profit, you will of course need to come up with a name. Something that resonates with you and the team you may have working with and supporting you. This article will help you learn about the different considerations you should have while giving your organisation a name.
This article will help you once and for all understand what not-for-profit is and how it is different from a charity, as well as break down some common misconceptions about not-for-profit organisations.
