My wife and I are into social projects for the blind . We want to open a Non - profit to train the blind , groom them for jobs and also help facilitate industry interaction and mentoring . We do not intend to make any money out of it . The services would be voluntary and no monetary transaction will be involved . However for the purposes later we do want to open a non - profit as a legal entity . Please advise the best incorporation for now . Whats a good fit here ? Charitable trust ? LL , Non profit . Whats the typical cost involved How quickly can we incorporate based on the idea above . ( time frame ) appreciate your advice !
