ABOUT THIS COURSE

Shout out about your commitment to a good cause by setting up your own charity. Raise funds, create awareness and see change happen.


Are you passionate about a good cause like education, animal rights, or cleaning up the environment?

Do you feel frustrated that not enough is being done about your chosen cause? Starting your own charity or nonprofit organization is the perfect way to have a direct impact on your cause.

You may be disheartened by large organizations and NGOs because you feel they aren’t adequately addressing the real issues – or you don’t approve of their spending. Or, you may feel excited by the idea that you can work hands-on to make a noticeable difference.

Whatever your reason, starting your own charity or program is a great way to:

  • Encourage involvement
  • Spread awareness in your community
  • Gain valuable business experience, and
  • Create the positive changes you want to see in the world

Find out how you can make a difference by studying how to set up your own charity and raise funds for it.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

In this course, we’ll walk you through all the steps of creating your own charity or nonprofit, from conception through execution.

You’ll learn to run your organization like a business, so that every decision is strategic, spending is on a tight leash, and your dedication and efforts are applied to where they’re needed most.

Learn how to run a successful organization with little capital, how to build a team of volunteers, how to leverage what resources you already have, and how to create successful events to attract sponsors, donors, and the media.

Good intentions are the starting point, but you’ll need to rely on business savvy and long-term planning for your charity to enjoy meaningful, longstanding success.

  • Anyone who has the passion and drive to stand up for their specific cause and wants to put their ideas into action
  • Volunteers for a particular cause who wants to make a bigger impact
  • Anyone who feels frustrated that an issue does not get the attention or funding it deserves
  • Everyone who feels compassion towards others and is fulfilled when they help them
  • People who want to gain valuable business or management experience

If your charity is financially successful, you can earn a salary as a board member, CEO, or other role. While the point isn’t to line your own pockets, you can earn a comfortable living by going from volunteer to employee. Here are other possible career paths for people who start their own charitable organization.

  • Working for large NGOs, who usually require previous experience in the nonprofit sector
  • Becoming an entrepreneur or small business owner
  • Working with the government in various capacities that can be related to your cause or field of interest
  • Management positions, where your experience managing volunteers, budgets, and events will enhance your resume or CV
  • Teaching, health care, law enforcement, and other fields where you can feel good about making a difference
