Steps for Starting a Chapter
Individuals interested in starting their own Chapter will receive the guidance, suggestions and instructions from the 2LiveBeyond Initiative Home Office to successfully establish a Certified Chapter.
There are three recognized phases in the process of becoming a fully Certified Chapter: pre start-up, start-up and emerging. The following table describes a typical Chapter formation process.
The Initiative asks that prior to receiving the Chapter Start-Up Package that the individuals requesting information fill out the appropriate documentation.
The Initiative asks that they include:
1. Names of the 7 individuals that will be the initial “Core Team.”
2. Letters from (2) two 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organizations that are prospects for future support.
3. Letters from at least (2) two financial supporters for the new Chapter Initiative totaling a minimum of $10,000.00.
