Do you have experience or know how to help start a 501(c)3? Please offer your support in helping our community do things like crowd sourced fundraisers, lab testing, education/classes, and other outreach.
Here is what we have so far.
Organization name: Undecided (“Finding Futures”)
State where corporation will be based: Oregon
Initial officers: @sidco, @Sidco_Cat, @Future, more?!
How many people do we need? Other roles?
Purpose of the non-profit entity: Community education and outreach.
The more the community itself is involved the better. The goal is to stay completely transparent about as much as humanely possible.
Someone in another thread mentioned Legalzoom.com. For a little cash they can really help expedite. I would like to be a part of this endeavor, especially with live plants training videos and crowd sourced fundraising.
If there’s anything I can do @sidco please let me know. I’m happy to help in whatever fashion, and coming tomorrow I’m going to be quarantined for 14 days to my, and 45 days in the building. SO I’ll have time to invest in however it can be invested. And Finding Futures sounds like a bitching name!
I think all this should be voted on especially if its for the community. I know when we started this fundraising idea it was to “help the members HERE” not community education and outreach. I think it should be more clearly defined with mission, vision, and core values like @Mosaic_Co-Labs suggested for this site but this charity more fits that structure.
Also, i think its members and its Officers should CERTAINLY be voted on. I dont think its right just to say me, my mom, and future are its officers already…
Will these officers get paid?? who is responsible for finance??
i had to look up the word… thanks for helping me learn something today…
I was thinking about something like this too. I have a huge building next to my house ive been eyeing. Its like 30k sq ft. I was thinking of buying it to house QSP. @qma always is asking for space in a place im looking at… My little brother needs a place to house his business. I was thinking of letting other people use the building for a cannabis think tank… We we can fund entreprenuers here and give them a place to start out their businesses…
