Hello! I am a Real Estate agent and I want to start a group

This answer was rated:

Hello! I am a Real Estate agent and I want to start a group of agents that agree to give %5 of their commissions to animal rescues. Do I need to create a non-profit or a foundation to do this?
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

Would there be any dues or membership fees or some other revenue that group might receive?

Can you please provide me with more details?

Hi Alex,


Thank you for getting back to me.


No we will not have any dues or be taking in any revenue. Each person will give directly to the rescues.




As long as there are no dues or other revenue that the group would receive, there is no legal requirement or need to form any type of legal entity, such as non-for -profit corporation.

I wish you the best of luck!
