Should I Start A Non-Profit Organization (NPO) for my FLOSS Project?

Most FLOSS projects probably could benefit from the structure and services that a NPO could provide. However, whether or not you need to start your own NPO to gain these services is a different question. We'll try to address both issues in this document.

NPO Benefits

  • Ability to raise funds more easily/effectively
  • They can give donors a tax benefit, and avoiding taxes on funds raised
  • It may help them create a governance structure
  • It gives greater brand recognition

FLOSS Foundations Software Project

FLOSS Foundations spawned off a software project (of sorts). If you are interested in software systems to help in the management of non-profit organizations, join the Foundations Software list. The FSF Wiki on non-profit management software may also be of interest.
