Congratulations! You’ve got an idea for making the world a better place, and you want to start a nonprofit as the means to do so. The good news is that starting a Texas nonprofit isn’t that hard to do if you have a sound plan, the right team, and sufficient startup capital.
The bad news is that running a successful nonprofit is not easy. You’ll need to think through exactly how you will bring value to the public, obtain funds, attract staff and/or volunteers, build a board of directors, and comply with the laws that regulate nonprofits. Your answers to these questions will determine whether you should start a nonprofit or consider alternatives.
