In considering some kind of end of the year/ beginning of the year post (which I decided to spare us all from) I realized that I never logged two important events in Idealware’s life. We’re now officially a nonprofit (technically, a nonprofit corporation). And we’re now able to fundraise, thanks to the generous fiscal sponsorship of Aspiration.
There’s some setup fun left to go (the 501(C)(3) process, insurance, bank accounts, etc) but so far the process hasn’t been too hard. We were lucky to be able to take advantage of the stellar services of the New York Lawyers for the Public Interest. They hooked Idealware up with a pro-bono lawyer who helped us through the process. I’ve no doubt that it would all have been much harder otherwise.
