"Legal" Content for front page of website...

I am starting a website which will mostly be to spread the word to help horses in need. It is a message forum, to help raise money, people asking for help etc. My question is, I am trying to do the front page and I'm not a great writer, and I was wondering if I can copy some articles off other websites pertaining to horse rescue, etc if it doesn't specify that it can't be copywrited or used in anyother way? I just want to try to help horses!

As long as they're not copyrighted, you don't post them as your own material, and give credit for where you got the article, I think you should be fine.

If your blog/message board is just to help people connect, and not where you're actually trying to collect money yourself, you won't need a 501(c)3 designation. If you're planning to actually collect and distribute money, you'll need to be classified legally as a not for profit organization.
