Thinking of owning your own business? Opening your own business is exciting and thrilling. It's everything that comes after the excitement and thrill has worn off that dictates whether a small business will make it or not. It's up to you to maintain and stretch out the "thrill and excitement" period forever.  

Forming a non-profit is a great way to support a worthwhile cause. As a non-profit, you are eligible to receive private and public grants and apply for tax-exempt status from the IRS. Plus, you'll be able to solicit tax-deductible donations, which are critical to your fundraising efforts. Non-profit recognition also reassures potential donors that you are a legitimate organization. .
