It needs to provide different membership levels, handle payments (via PayPal or Google Checkout), and provide some method for allowing members to renew or upgrade their memberships, change their info as needed, etc. It does not need to be free, even though that would be nice.

Resources Regarding Technology and Culture

The Non-Profit I'm working for is looking into the issues of technology and culture. That is.. how technology effects culture, how it changes the way we think, learn, etc. Despite this seeming a rather obvious topic, I'm having a hard time finding good research sources. My guess is I'm not asking the question properly, but that doesn't change what I need to know. [more inside]

For-profit trade association

We want to form a 'for profit' trade association. Several of us (in my industry) think we should be represented by a trade association, but all the research I've done so far points to associations as 'non-profit' organizations. Is there any reason why a commercial company can't set itself up as an industry association and sell memberships and attempt to represent it's members ? (in marketing and regulation and public education, etc.) [more inside]

Charitable Contributions, Pending Exemption and Deductability

If you have filed for exemption with the IRS for a nonprofit you are starting and your status is pending while they review, I understand that you can still solicit donations and generally when your exemption is granted your exempt status applies retroactively to your date of incorporation. But how are the donor's charitable contributions treated? Can they deduct the tax year they donate or do they have to wait until the tax year in which exemption is granted (if the pending period lasts until a new tax year)? Or is it also retroactive and they would have to amend their previous tax return once the nonprofit gains exempt status?

SAS112 Risk Assessment help

My midsized arts organization needs to complete the new audit risk assessment form SAS112. Has anyone done this yet? We need to know if there is standard language, suggested scope, any tips for getting through it with no staff time to spare. Found some stuff on google, but I'm still at sea. I've only made it up to page 19 with about 15 hours put into it, so either I don't know what I'm doing or this is a mess o' hard.

A worthwhile idea hitting an expensive wall...a philanthropic idea in trouble

I am currently involved in setting up a website, and it is proving to be a Herculean task. However, thanks to an instilled sense of guilt and a desire to feel worthful, for a change, I have decided to give back to those that may not be as lucky, as rich, or as pretty as me, namely New York’s starving (or just struggling) artists. My goal, through this website, is to give them a helping hand for free, but obviously need some sort of funding and business plan to move forwards with. I have no experience with any of this. Please help! My main concerns, not having ever done this before, are worrying about how to get funding/donations, whether I need to turn it into an NPO, and whether I should be worried about business-minded people stealing my idea, commercializing it, and basically shoving me out of the way. The following are a list of problems for the immediate future. I have listed them all here because of AskMetafilter’s one-week policy on posting new threads. [more inside]
