I think at this point, our group is still too small to want/need/be able to pull off
something like this.

However, the suggestion of being a sub-entity under a larger non-profit might be a
good idea. Perhaps there is/should be a contintental or regional or national entity...

To the original argument: registering as a not-for-profit only makes it easier to
collect donations *from people/entities who want the tax write-off*
