How Do I Start a Nonprofit?

Starting a nonprofit is not much different from forming any other type of business entity. However, due to the unique tax status of nonprofit and charitable organizations, the overall process can be significantly more difficult and complex than a straightforward business formation.

At the law firm of Gammon & Grange, P.C., our attorneys can help clients start a nonprofit of nearly any type, from international NGOs to local social welfare organizations to church groups and ministries. We have been helping our clients successfully achieve their goals for more than 30 years.

Forming a Nonprofit Organization

The process of nonprofit business formation can be technically complex. There are certain limits as far as employee and director salaries, limitations on fundraising and lobbying, tax considerations, and other issues that should be addressed during the formation phase.

Our nonprofit lawyers can help guide clients through every step of the formation process and can provide guidance concerning all potential issues, including:

  • Articles of incorporation
  • State and federal filings
  • Bylaws
  • Best practices

Once a formation plan is in place and a filing for nonprofit status has been made, it is important for an organization to adhere to all of the rules designed to govern a charitable organization. We can help ensure that our clients' nonprofit businesses succeed in their missions for years to come, starting with the creation of a nonprofit.
