Re-purpose Existing Organization!
If you are a founder or part of an existing not-for-profit organization organized as a 501(c)(3) you may be able to re-purpose your existing organization to serve as the c-Community.
If your organization mission is aimed at supporting local community or municipality critical infrastructure, emergency services, or public safety, your existing organization may be eligible to serve as a c-Community.
Or, alternatively, if your not-for-profit has a mission of educating local members of the public or students or enhancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education you may qualify.
Review the legal resources included in this Toolkit then meet with your Founders and/or Board of Directors to make the necessary changes and/or additions to your organizing documents to apply to serve as a c-Community.
