Good Morning.My name is***** have a 501.c.3 non profit in Florida. We are ambitious to make big growth the next few years, and I am trying to do some due diligence. We receive many donations for cars and boats throughout the year. We see other non profits who do this as a fundraising effort, receiving donations and reselling them to fund their organization. Our understanding is that in Florida, entities who sell 3 or more vehicles are required to have a dealers license. This is almost impossible to obtain in Monroe County Florida. The state requirements are that a dealer must have a commercial car lot, and they are all used up in our County. What options do we have as a non profit to be able to legally sell vehicles donated to us in Florida living in a county where we are unable to obtain a dealers license?

I am pastor of a church in AZ. Our kitchen person recently went to the Food Bank for some reason. She was informed that the church could have food from the food bank since we help some homeless individuals and hold recovery services for those with drug and alcohol recovery needs. Those in recovery are able to have Thursday dinners with us without charge.The question came up about the food bank being federally supported, so does that mean the church should not be receiving goods from the food bank?

Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least

Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least expensive way to begin a non-profit that involves the fewest number of people? I know usually there's a ' board,' etc. I want to start a small arts non-profit and then build it up from there to be able to apply for grants etc. eventually. It would be small to start, and potentially just myself or one or two others included. Is that possible with a very small group, not a big ' board' involved? I know there's a ' state-level' type of filing, and then something called 501-C ?)- but that's about all I know. Thanks.
