Listen at: Voice America
Setting up an Autism-Related Charity with Shannon Nash, Esq., CPA
Many people are interested in setting up an autism-related nonprofit, but the thought of doing so can be daunting. There are horror stories of the IRS approval process. Couple this with an already busy schedule in raising a child with autism, and even the most committed altruist can be dissuaded. But there's hope for those wanting to set up an autism-related charity. This process can be boiled down to its major steps, and Shannon will discuss these. Shannon Nash is a CPA, attorney, author, entrepreneur, and mom. She is the president of Nash Management Group, an entertainment, tax and business management firm. Shannon is the author of the award-winning book For the Love of Money: The 411 to Taking Control of Your Taxes and Building Your Net Worth as well as Helping the Nonprofit Client and more. She's passionate about advocating for special needs children and is the former secretary of Cure Autism Now (now Autism Speaks).
