Fighting Displacement

I am Carson Gaffrey-Kruse, and I am on a mission to end displacement when disaster strikes (earthquakes, fire, flooding, war, etc.). Right now I am starting a non-profit that provides temporary housing that fits each family and individual's needs. When disaster strikes, large tents are placed for a massive amount of people and families, which are not sanitary,  private, or secure. My goal is to give families and individual's temporary housing that is sanitary, privatesecure, and most importantly a place that they can proudly call home
 
To put this vision into action, I need to complete the necessary start-up process. To fulfill this list, I am going to need $225 to trademark the name, $900 to register the nonprofit, and $950 for a 501(c)(3) application, which is a tax exemption that enables you to direct more money to those who are displaced. Additional attorney fees are $1,075. This doesn't include Gofundme fees which will subtract approximately $350. Extra money donated will be reserved for future expenses for the company.

List of requirements:

 1: Register the non-profit
2: Get the name trademarked
3: Apply for a 501(c)(3) tax exemption
