Entrepreneur Toolkit: Non-Profit

Your go-to resource for starting or growing a non-profit in DC 

Non-profits impact our communities and lives every day. A non-profit organization is an incorporated organization
which exists for educational or charitable reasons, and from which its shareholders or trustees do not benefit financially. Non-profit organizations are active in humanitarian aid, education, the arts, the environment,
animal protection and other endeavors. Washington, DC is home to the largest concentration of non-profits and
associations in the United States with approximately 13,000 non-profit organizations (Internal Revenue Service, Exempt Organizations Business Master File [June 2014]).

We created this Entrepreneur Toolkit specifically for DC non-profit organizations to complement our more comprehensive and detailed DC Doing Business Guide, which you can download here or come by 1495 F St. NW to pick up your copy today!
