About The Founder

Hello! I’m LaCharla Figgs, founder of T.L. Figgs Nonprofit Consulting and Nonprofit Startup Academy LLC. I'm a 25+ year veteran of nonprofit management, grant making, and consulting.

I launched the Nonprofit Startup Academy in 2016 to focus solely on nonprofit founders.

Grant programs have paid for much of my nonprofit consulting work over the years. And I realized something: Many more individuals and church leaders want to create nonprofits, but they don't have access to those free consulting services, provded by grant-funded programs.

So I created this digital program to offer convenient, affordable support to visionaries across the country who want a mentor to help them launch high-performing, life-changing nonprofits.

I love serving visionaries who just can't wait for "someone somewhere" to do something. They're ready to make a difference! I can't imagine a better job!
