Default College Kiteboarding Association Needs Help With Legal Filing

The call is going out for an US Attorney to help our up and coming kiters through the College Kiteboarding Association to complete their 501(c)(3) filing. Please pass this along.

We have spent a good part of the year trying to form the Collegiate Kiteboarding Association (CKA) as a non-profit 501(c)(3) without any success. The CKA has existed over the past 10 years in various shapes and forms but it has been difficult to do business as it has never been recognized as a formal legal entity. The goal here is to structure the organization as a company so that we can i) provide event insurance for college clubs ii) offer a equipment to college riders by supplying tax write offs to potential donors, and iii) provide scholarships. It is very important to us that we remain 'not for profit' and student led.

A lawyer promised earlier this year to file the paperwork for us pro bono but is now unreachable. We have completed the paperwork for Bylaws and Articles for Incorporatation along with the signed release of the CKA name by the founder. We have also elected a board, club representatives and have a website. We need to get the ball rolling ASAP for the upcoming school year and I wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone can help us out (and quickly!). A few of us have agreed that we would cover the costs out of our own pockets if need be, but hoped that a promise of future work would be enough to attract someone to do the work pro bono.

Are there any US lawyers out there that can help?
