When I was first dx in Sept, 2008, my children and I decided that we wanted to start a non profit foundation to help others with Lung Cancer. I have always been more of a giver than a receiver. We want to promote awareness, help with reseach money, and help people in financial need, or just to give them a wish they always wanted. We have lots of ideas, and have talked to many people about fundraisers. We just don't where to begin. We looked into 501 3 B and it seems so complicated. I have talked to an Acct he said ask a lawyer so I talked to a lawyer and he said talk to an acct. Now What? We live in South Florida.
If there is anyone out there who has done this or knows how to set up a non profit foundation, I would appreaciate any suggestions. We are trying to do this with as little investment as possible.
Thank you for any help you may give us.
Hugs and Prayers as always, we all must fight this monster together!!!!
