How to Convert Your Homeschool Business into a Nonprofit Organization



Sometimes a homeschool group that started as a for-profit business wants to convert to a nonprofit organization.

Can that be done? Yes!

How hard is it?

How costly is it?

What steps do I take?


I’m offering a webinar on How to Convert Your Business into a Nonprofit Organization for Homeschool Programs

Now it has a new name!

Create a Nonprofit Organization for Your Homeschool Community

This is a slight name change from the original webinar. As I was preparing the slides, I realized that the information I was sharing was broad enough to be helpful to anyone starting a new homeschool nonprofit or converting a business to a nonprofit. So I re-named the webinar and I also reduced the price to $10 to make it affordable to more people.

The webinar will be airing live on Monday April 22, 2019 at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT/6 pt MT/5 pm PT.


The goal of this webinar is to equip homeschool leaders with an understanding of how to form a nonprofit. You will understand:

  • The steps to take
  • What documents need to be filed and with who
  • The cost and time commitment
  • How to determine if this is a viable option for your homeschool program to pursue

The webinar will cover:

  • The difference between a business and a nonprofit
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of being a nonprofit
  • Forming a board: who can be one it, what do they do, etc.
  • Creating bylaws
  • Drafting a budget
  • Setting up a bank account
  • Forming a nonprofit corporation in your state
  • The timeline to get this all done
  • The expense to accomplish this

A follow up webinar will cover the IRS Form 1023/1023-EZ Application for 501c3 Tax Exempt Status. It will air sometime in June 2019.

Who should register?

  • Brand new start up homeschool groups
  • Existing groups that never formed as a nonprofit
  • Homeschool communities run as a business that want to convert to be a nonprofit
  • Leaders that are unsure if their homeschool group is a business or a nonprofit. It can be confusing!

The webinar fee is $10. 

You will receive:

  • Access to the live webinar with a chat room to ask questions
  • A link to the recording of the video to watch later
  • A copy of the slides from the webinar
