Looking to raise $ for charities and such - Starting charity So I have these sheep at my feet and I can use them how I please.... we're thinking of doing some community excursions.... fundraisers and such... looking for a charity to donate money to, or possibly thinking of starting our own charity... like the "Youth Foundation Fund" or some sort, for our local town. I need an official guide on how to do this... what are the guidelines, rules, etc. for creating something like this... specifically starting one's own charity fund, and some kind of sponsoring fund. Location is critical, obviously, so Western Canada. Even answer what they do in the States, or in different parts of the world so others can benefit from this post, but make sure you point that out in your posts. Sorry for the vagueness, just seeking answers. Thank you.
