I'm assisting a community garden group with their long range planning. They
are 3 years old and have been run by grassroots efforts so far, and have done
well to deepen community partnerships and involve a lot of people to have fun
at their green oasis.
The question the garden group faces now is:
"Should the group incorporate?"
They want to have more credibility and a legal structure which allows them to
fundraise legally, and for general improved organization.
Any advice on the pros and cons of the garden group becoming incorporated?
I work with a nonprofit, www.nnninfo.org, and we are not ready to be the legal
parent organization for the group at this time.
Would this be a good route to take at some point. what are the pros and cons
What is a good process for the group to follow in making this decision.
Thanks a lot for any tips!
