    The very, very first step should be to start a blog. It's easy to set up, you can explain what you're all about and you can refer people who are interested in your business area to the blog.

    My advice is get people interested first, before jumping into building a NGO (which is a good idea).

    Sir, the first step is to go to the Secretary of State and get paperwork to apply for your 501(c)(3).  This is the tax exempt paperwork that needs to be filed with the State where you plan to conduct your non profit.  Before you file the paperwork you will need to call the IRS and get a EIN number.

    You could also get paper work and file for a 501(c)(4) so that you can apply for grants with foundations, your business looks like foundation money.  I hope this helps...look at my Tea Solutions blog.  I process this type paper work for a liviing here in Chicago.

    My blog will tell you the rest of the process to start a non profit, how to raise money for a non profit, and how to manage to keep your non profit running for years to come.
