          Here is a link to some information on "How to Form a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation":


          Or you can Google "How to Form a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation" and find a lot of information from different sources. Remember it is always a good idea to get your business idea or plan down on paper. Its especially important for start-ups that may be looking for funding or investors at some point.


          In general Business Plans are made up of the following:

          1. Executive Summary
          2. Market Opportunity
          3. Vision, Mission, & Objectives
          4. Management
          5. Business Strategy
          6. Competition
          7. Risk
          8. Financial Plan
          9. Capital Requirements
          10. Summary

          From my experience helping with business plans; they fall into 3 categories of use:

          1. Internal Planning: Business Formation & Development
          2. Internal Planning and presentation to close contacts that might want to invest in their business.
          3. Internal Planning, close contacts presentation and presentation to experienced investors and/or sources of funding for the business.

          Good luck with the formation of your new corporation.
