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.
