This is a good resource.

It varies from state to state on local rules. I was on a Little League Board for 6 years, keeping up on records and all the paperwork required by the state and feds is critical.

I have filed 3 times for 3 different parent groups at my kids schools and was approved all 3 times. Great info at www.ptotoday.com and purchase the start-up guide for $39 http://www.ptotoday.com/startup-guide. It gives step-by-step instructions on how to do this - I did it on my own - no lawyer, accountant, etc.

Your company may be slightly different, but it's a good place to start. Good luck - it's a lot of work, but well worth it!

What is the first step we should do, we have a local haunt..There is another haunt that is a big non for profit in our area..we want to give to a different charity..Do you have to go through a lawyer we are trying to keep start up cost low..
