Do I need state recognition to put that I started a nonprofit on my college apps, or as long as it's not for profit?
Do I need state recognition to put that I started a nonprofit on my college apps, or is it as long as I created an organization that is not for profit?
I am making a business on instagram that gives 100% of the money to animals, but I am not recognized by the state to be a nonprofit.

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
You can say you have an Instagram page to raise money for animals, even a successful one, but calling it a non-profit is probably a stretch and might be considered misleading. Either make your operation an official non-profit or don't call it that (from a college perspective).
I think being a non-profit requires facilities, employees, a complex operation, many legal requirements, and so on. Unless you really have the time and resoures to figure all of that out, it would be better to say you led a fundraising initiative through Instagram for the animals. Good luck!
(Note: I'm not a lawyer. If you want to make this non-profit thing really happen, you might want to consider hiring one to help you through it)
