    Does Anyone Know Anything About Starting a Foundation?

    i guess this is going to vary state by state. i'm moving to illinois, so i'll start looking more deeply into this when i get there.
    i imagine i'll need an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the laws.

    i found this link, which outlines a whole lot - http://www.cof.org/content/starting-a-foundation - but does anyone have any experience with foundations?

    no, i understand that.
    my problem is that i want to start something...
    i don't know if a foundation is what i want to start. i'm not sure i know what i want my business to do.

    the foundation thing is a cool idea, but not sure how feasible it is without money.

    i think starting a scholarship would be pretty cool - probably need money for that.

    i think this thread was premature. lol

    u're doing it backwards. first decide what u want to do and then find ways how to do it.

    and nothing is feasible without money. if your idea is worthy, people would invest. there are a lot of people with money that want to invest but don't have right ideas or people to invest into
