I've decided that this week I will file to incorporate as a Social Purpose Corporation in Washington State.
"A social purpose corporation (SPC) is a type of for-profit corporation in Washington State and some other US states. For would-be organizations, this style of corporation may be preferred over a nonprofit one. Think of a social purpose corporation as a hybrid between a traditional for-profit company and a nonprofit. Directors of a for-profit corporation have a duty to act in the best interest of the corporation. This duty has been interpreted as a responsibility to maximize the financial returns for shareholders. Conversely, nonprofit organizations seek out charitable and social purposes, and they are legally prohibited from distributing profits to members, officers, and others." - excerpt from 501 Commons
I'll also be pursuing official agency morale support from the FBI, NYSP, Broome County Sheriff's Office, Broome County Security Division, and others. Furthermore, I'll be reaching out to SUNY Binghamton to see about brining them on board too.
Keep being great & doing great things my friends!
