What Steps Need to be Taken to Form a Nonprofit Corporation?

You must incorporate the nonprofit organization in your particular state, which consists of filing your organization’s articles of incorporation with the state. It is important that your organizing documents contain the required language and specific clauses, such as a detailed exempt purpose statement, to ensure that your nonprofit will meet the requirements to qualify for Federal 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. If you choose to incorporate your nonprofit through Incfile, you only need to complete the online order form. Incfile will prepare and file your organizing documents.
