The Regional Foundation Center of the Free Library of Philadelphia is celebrating our 36th year of informing the nonprofit community. 

If you are a new or emerging nonprofit organization, please join us on Tuesday, May 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Montgomery Auditorium of the Parkway Central Library as Sharon Wilson, Esq.--Managing Partner of Wilson and Wilson, LLP and former Director of Temple University's Beasley School of Law's Center for Community Nonprofit Organizations--returns to the Library's main stage for this instructive workshop.

Learn how to start and run a successful nonprofit organization. Tackle incorporation, drafting bylaws, director's responsibilities, applying for 501(c)3 status, and all the additional steps in between. There will be a short break during the workshop, as well as time for Q & A session.

This workshop is FREE, but registration through is required. Please call 215-686-5423 with questions.

The Regional Foundation Center gratefully acknowledges the support of our Advisory Council, which provides financial and human resources in support of the RFC’s mission.

This is quite interesting, I was myself thinking of creating such an organization to promote language exchange and culture protection in the world.
