Where should I begin my research on founding a Spiritual Organization in Hawaii?

Asked by sunyata_rakshasa (350 points ) March 6th, 2011

Like I said where do I begin, what government offices will have the paper work I need?

Are there “blueprints” on how the processes is done available online??

etc etc

Thank you in advance and feel free to ask any questions about the organization, both out of intrigue and if it helps you to provide better answers.

Thank you all so much.

Namaste.

Do you want your organization to be a non-profit? If so, you will need to apply for 501©3 status through the IRS.

Here are the steps for Hawaii.

Just curious—does Hawaii really need another one?

Marinelife is right about the IRS status.
