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]

Nonprofit mailing: Correct way to bulk mail at the nonprofit rate

I understand that there are three different ways to adhere postage for bulk nonprofit mailings. Permit imprint, pre-canceled stamps or a postage meter. However we are getting conflicting information from our local post office and the USPS. Can we print postage with the meter at the non-profit rate and not use the permit imprint number? [more inside]

Matching Designers & Non-profits

I'm helping a long-time friend who has recently taken the helm at a small non-profit and needs some web design work done. I've come across a number of web sites that connect designers with non-profits over the last few years... but can only remember Guru.com. I'd like to recommend a service to her, but I'm coming-up short. Does anyone here have experience with a firm like/better than Guru? Guru may end-up being our final choice, but I can't imagine they're the only players in the field.

Best online auction site for a nonprofit's benefit artwork auction?

I'm doing some volunteer web work for a small nonprofit. They want to auction artwork online in advance of a benefit event. They need an auction service to handle the bidding. Bidders would be local residents, items would be priced in the low hundreds of dollars, and the nonprofit would handle delivery of the art. Any easy to set up, easy for users to register and use, inexpensive providers out there?

PIRGThing

I need to catalogue my non-profit's library of books and videos. We want it to be accessible for students and faculty to easily see what we own and what is currently available for borrowing. I have been looking at LibraryThing, and am pretty impressed, but I can't see a way to incorporate our films, to give each item an id number, or to mark what is currently borrowed or available. Are there ways for me to do this, or would another site/software be better?

How do I invest $40,000 for one year for a non-profit corporation?

How do I invest $40,000 for one year for a non-profit corporation? The non-profit art space that I started recently recieved a couple grants amounting to about $40,000. Yay! We will spend all the money gradually over the course of this year. Initially I thought I could open an account with ING Direct or Emigrant Direct, but they do not offer accounts to corporations, only personal accounts. Our bank's interest rate is terrible and I'm sure we can do better. Does anyone have any advice for short term, near zero risk investing?
