Does anyone have experience running/owning a non-profit? I’m looking to start an animal rescue (cat) non-profit in my state. I have absolutely no experience with a non-profit. I’ve done my research. I know what papers I need to file in my state to start a business and then to apply for non-profit status at the federal level etc.
I guess I’m just looking for any personal experience if anyone has any? I’m kind of anxious about the whole thing because I’ve never done any business before and I just feel like I don’t really have any idea how this is going to play out. I know it would be ideal to go volunteer for an animal non-profit or something but that’s not really an option as I’m already pretty deep in cat rescue work and I’d like to get the business going so I can do more and not have to use my own funds anymore.
