Does anyone have time to figure out the best method to begin accepting donations for the group that does not require us to have a legal business structure (ie - spc, 501c3)?
Currently, we can accept payments through the meetup page but, I doubt that this is the best method.
I think we should need this to be one of our (many) priorities.
Some questions to be answered:
1) Do we need a bank acct in the organizations name, or can this be done with a personal acct of some sort (ie - escrow).
2) What online tool(s) should be used to collect money?
3) How can/should we promote this?
4) If we setup a personal acct, do we need any kind of legal agreement drawn up to denote how the money will be used.
