I've been told I can legally share my personal copy of packaged software (in this case MS Office) with a non-profit organization as long as they only install it on one machine. Is this true?

Wine needed for arts event. Free is best.

I've been tasked with securing in-kind beverage donations / beverage sponsorship for an event at a music & dance education non-profit, and I'm failing pretty badly.

Which officer role(s) should the founder of a small nonprofit take?

I'm starting a small nonprofit. It is just myself at this point, though I have a very serious organization verbally committed to seed money and promotion. I have not yet solicited a board of directors or officers. What do most sole operators do? Do I double serve as executive director and board chair, at least initially? Or, do I take on the most labor-intensive offices of treasurer/secretary? I throw this out to the experts here, of whom there seem to be many, based on my perusal of nonprofit threads.

Launching a journalism nonprofit

You may have heard of MinnPost.com, voiceofsandiego.org and propublica.com. All are nonprofit websites dedicated to quality journalism. All must have had their start somewhere. I’ve had a similar idea. I’m an editor at a small local daily, although I’ve had a long stint as a pretty good political reporter. Three reporter friends and myself are looking at founding our own nonprofit online-only journalism organization dedicated to state politics. I should note that all of us have some pretty strong credentials and between us have won a number of awards, so we know we can handle the reporting end of this venture. [more inside]
