When you start a farm sanctuary, you will not be able to open a bank account for your farm sanctuary until you have incorporated it as a non-profit.

The best thing till then is to create a PayPal account to manage your farm sanctuary’s money. This helps keep your personal money separate from the farm sanctuary’s as well as an easy way to collect donations.

When you are working towards becoming a charity, keeping the sanctuary’s money separate and in order from the start, helps you a lot in the long run!
