Because Help-Portrait is a US based non-profit, we often get asked if people can setup a non-profit in their own country in order to offer tax benefits and to comply with government requirements. Unfortunately, Help-Portrait, Inc. doesn’t have the resources to properly setup and maintain these type of partnerships.
If you are seeking tax benefits or need to connect with a non-profit for legal purposes, we suggest the following:
- Ask a local non-profit to assist you in your event and efforts – Oftentimes, local churches and parishes will utilize HP events as an outreach and partner with local HP volunteers. This allows you to fundraise and funnel expenses through them for tax purposes.
- Start your own non-profit – This is the most extensive and expensive option, but it would give you the freedom and benefits you seek. Please understand that Help-Portrait is an international trademark and you do not have permission to use it in your business name.
