I couldn't have started my nonprofit without it!

By Oliver White, Columbus, OH

I wanted to learn everything about starting up a nonprofit organization and was looking for an easy, step-by-step, guide. I had so many questions to ask attorneys, though I didn't have the money to pay one. After being ordained at Universal Life Church Monastery I noticed this guide on their website and decided I would check it out. Author and attorney, Peri Pakroo, has done everything I could hope for by writing Starting & Building a Nonprofit: A Practical Guide. This book is so well written, easy to understand and has laid out each section with simple and precise details. Pick this one up and you'll have your nonprofit off the ground in no time at all!
