We’re moving the Dayton .NET Developers Group to non-profit status to make it a bit more attractive for other organizations, individuals, and companies to donate goods or services to us. (Most straight cash support can be written off a business’s marketing effort expenses.) Bob Sledge, our group’s new Treasurer, has been finding lots of great reference links.
Here, in no particular order, are some great helpful links:
- http://www.lawyeratlarge.com/Common/Previews/NonPro.html — Looks to be an online copy of a book that wasn’t ever published. Long, extensive details on Non-Profit status.
- http://smallbusiness.findlaw.com/business-structures/non-profit.html — Lots of summary information, a FAQ, and other resources.
- http://www.hurwitassociates.com/l_start_forming.html — Generic overview on starting a non-profit.
- http://www.hurwitassociates.com/l_s_initial_oh.html — Steps on filing in Ohio. A great basic overview of the steps involved.
- http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p557.pdf — The IRS pub covering tax-exempt status.
- http://www.sos.state.oh.us/sos/businessservices/nonProf.aspx?Section=111 — Ohio’s Secretary of State’s office website: creating an Ohio Non-profit.

I’ll post up other bits and pieces as we continue down this road.
Now Playing: Beck — Odelay. I saw these guys on Letterman the other night and thought they were pretty cool. I also nabbed “Black Tambourine” which they played on Letterman. Pretty funny to have found these folks on that show — I never, and I mean never watch Letterman since I’m either at my computer working or heading for much needed sleep. Dunno if I’ll like this music in a month or so, but it’s different and cool right now.
