Becoming a Non-profit

I'm starting an online radio station to broadcast sound art by underrepresented artists 24/7! The station is called Marginalized Sound and it will host music programs, poetry readings, play readings, radio shows specializing in sound art by trans artists (for example), and more!!! I want to show the world that diversity is a choice.

Funds raised here will help to file for articles of incorporation ($125), publish a notice of intent ($100), file a tax-exempt request ($600), and register with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations ($15). I've also added $35 as buffer. By filing these forms, I will legally create a non-profit, tax-exempt business in the USA that will be eligible to apply for large grants. These will fund the day-to-day operations of the station and will allow for further expansion in the future when needed.

All funders, no matter the size of the donation, will be thanked live during our first broadcast! 

This is just the beginning of something great and I hope you'll be a part of it! Your support is kindly appreciated and follow on Facebook to stay connected!
