Hello, I am a professional here to assist you. I appreciate your use of this service.
The answer depends on the plans for the event. Many small charity events seek permission of a specific non-profit to use their name and logo with proceeds going directly to the non-profit.
If, however, one intends to hold those funds and manage the expenditure of those funds for various purposes such as research then a non-profit is typically needed.
If you are just getting started the easiest route is to get in touch with non-profits benefiting the need of choice. The non-profit will be able to offer assistance in setting up the event.
