Making it Easier to Make a Difference

Incorporating as a nonprofit paves the way for success. Because they’re established to serve a public purpose rather than shareholder interest, nonprofits may be exempt from income, sales, and property taxes. Incorporating also makes it easier to obtain grants and donations. And finally, the laws governing nonprofit corporations simplify officer roles and responsibilities. CT’s experts make the road to incorporation a smooth one.

CT’s Nonprofit Specialists Will:

  • Work with you to select the nonprofit incorporation package that best meets your specific needs and long-term vision
  • Advise you on your formation state’s naming requirements and verify name availability
  • Meticulously complete your Articles of Incorporation, being careful to include the language required for tax-exempt status
  • File all paperwork with the Secretary of State and monitor the process on your behalf
  • Ensure prompt delivery of your Articles of Incorporation upon approval

Nonprofit Corporations FAQs

What is a nonprofit corporation?

Nonprofit corporations are created to serve a public purpose, not to make money. As a result, they receive special treatment under the law and may qualify for tax-exempt status. While they can turn a profit, that cannot be their primary goal, and no portion of it can benefit their members.

What’s the difference between a for-profit and a nonprofit corporation?

Nonprofit corporations are formed to benefit a specific public purpose, whereas for-profit corporations work to benefit their owners and shareholders. A nonprofit loses its tax-exempt status if there’s any benefit to a private individual who controls it. Lastly, nonprofits are eligible for preferential treatment at the state and federal levels.
