Are you looking to start a business and help the community? Do you have a mission to do good but worry about the burdens of running a nonprofit? Not sure of the differences between an LLC and a nonprofit?

Lawyers Clearinghouse and Lawyers for Civil Rights are proud to partner on a 2-hour seminar designed for people who are in the process of creating a business or have an idea for a business and want to give back to the community in some capacity. This program will give a high-level view of what types of businesses you can form, what structure is best for you, and what an organization can do to bring about positive change. This seminar will walk through:

– The various for-profit structures such as LLC, S-Corp, C-Corp, and Benefit Corporations
– Differences between for-profit and nonprofit?
– Legal requirements for both structures

Ultimately, this seminar will highlight the benefits and challenges of each path and help you make an informed decision about your business.

Presenters: Russell Paul, Nonprofit Assistance Manager at Lawyers Clearinghouse; Priya Lane, Economic Justice Project Director at Lawyers for Civil Rights.
