What is the history behind starting a nonprofit organization? +

Giving back to societies in different forms such as in the form of cash contribution or service, contribution is an old fashion and tradition to help people and improve society's lifestyle.

Generally, a person gets motivated by financial benefits and that's why a nonprofit organization was given a legal status by the lawmakers to claim expenses to reduce tax liabilities for securing financial benefits and holds a person accountable for collecting contribution and its legit distribution to stop mishandling funds of a nonprofit organization.

Based on my research, the first nonprofit entity was started in the United States was in 1940 which was created by Edward L. Ryerson. She was a steel executive and she lived in Illinois. The name of the organization was Council on Foundation and it was funded by community individuals.

What goals does a person achieve by establishing a non-profit organization? +

To do something different gives you energy, keeps you motivated and restores your faith in what you are doing is a great, unique and demanding cause for society that keeps you free from the fear that you may be held accountable.

A nonprofit organization is created to serve society for many purposes and the intention behind a non-profit-organization must not be generating income, rather than the intention must be distribution of funds fairly that has been contributed by the donors to be spent for a good cause.

Yes, it is the duty of the state to help every citizen, but in practice it is not possible for a state so the communities people take some burden of the state and in return, the state gives them financial benefits such as the state allows them to claim contribution on their income tax returns to reduce tax liability.

How many types of nonprofits are available to the state? And, +

A nonprofit is called by many different names such as;

  1. Not-for-profit organization,
  2. Nonprofit organization
  3. Non-business entity or
  4. A nonprofit institution.

Even though, the names and indicators may be different, but the purpose still remains same, to register a nonprofit entity.

State proposes different types of nonprofit organizations and you establish a nonprofit based on the activities. Let me give a few examples to clarify it a bit better:
  1. Religious organization where people of the same faith worship at religious sites, such as Churches, synagogue mosques and temples.
  2. Research and development or a scientific organization are also one kind of nonprofit organizations which were established to discover or enhance technology to improve lifestyle.
  3. A nonprofit is created to help communities, to provide basic human needs such as food, cloth and a place to live temporarily or permanently.

Can you create a nonprofit organization for political activities such as collecting funds to run a political election? +

A Nonprofit organization is not allowed for any political activities and contribution in political activities is not tax deductible as well.

Who manages a nonprofit organization and what are the positions a nonprofit organization may have? +

Generally a nonprofit is managed by:

  1. Officers
  2. Directors
  3. Employees
  4. Trustees
  5. President
  6. Vice President
  7. Secretary, And
  8. Managers

How does a nonprofit organization generate funding to manage paying routine expenses, including paying salaries for staff and management? +

A nonprofit organization generates donations through campaigns and acquire government grants rather than revenues. It receives donations from generous people and organizations to operate.

A Donor and Do-nee play a vital role in rolling a nonprofit. A donor is a person or an organization who makes a contribution voluntarily in a form of cash or service whereas a Do-nee is a person or an organization who receives gift to start and run a nonprofit organization.

Providing service as a volunteer for a nonprofit organization is not part of the donation, so it is not tax deductible.

What are the steps to register a non-profit organization? +

Registration of a nonprofit organization is a triangular process. Every nonprofit organization is registered with;

  1. The State or county which depends on the activities of a nonprofit organization.
  2. The Internal Revenue Services for federal tax exemption, And
  3. The Attorney General Office for state tax exemption.

 

What documents are filed to register a not-for-profit organization? +

Articles of certificate of incorporation are filed by the state or county which depends on each state and the type of entity; For Example : A nonprofit for a hospital will be filed with the state, whereas a religious organization article is filed by the county clerks office in the state of New York.

  • After the approval from the state examiner, an Employer Identification Number is applied to the Internal Revenue Services.
  • The EIN does not mean that you have gotten a federal tax exemption approval rather it is simply issued to start nonprofit and open bank account.

How to acquire the status of Federal tax exemption from the Internal Revenue Services for a nonprofit organization? +

After the initial incorporation filings with the secretary of state, we file 501C-3 with Internal Revenue Services along with :

  1. Bylaws, which normally includes purpose of a nonprofit, titles of the officers and their duties and dissolution clause.
  2. Narrative description is filed which includes detailed purpose and how a nonprofit will serve communities.
  3. Conflict of interest statement or a duality of interest statement is filed, which include policies and procedures of a nonprofit entity, that any officer or trustee will not conflict with the position, financial responsibility or other duties performed by nonprofit and in the community.
Since, filing a nonprofit entity is a complex and time consuming process, I highly recommend to hire an experienced professional to prepare and file documents to concerned agencies to reduce the chance of rejection for your nonprofit organization articles.

What is the procedure to process nonprofit filing with the attorney general office? +

After getting the approval of Federal Tax Exemption from the Internal Revenue Services which is also called 501c3, the approved articles are submitted to the attorney general office to acquire a state tax exemption which is important to claim donations and receive contributions in tax returns.

What is the use of federal and state tax exemptions? +

Without having tax exemptions from the state and federal, a nonprofit organization cannot collect donation and a donor cannot claim contribution to get the tax benefit.

  3. Involved in any prohibited activity.

What is the requirement to register the same nonprofit organization or a branch office to operate in multiple states?; +

A nonprofit organization is required to register in each state under principle nonprofit organization to extend operation of the same organization in a different state. And, let me explain the process:

  1. A foreign entity is established under a principle nonprofit organization to extend operation in the state where the operation will be started with the principle nonprofit organization. It is also known as a certificate of authority and transact business in another states.
  2. Principle's nonprofit institution, employer identification number will be used rather than obtaining a new E.I.N from the Internal Revenue Services.
  3. Principle nonprofit institution, federal tax exemption will be used rather than applying for a new federal tax exemption.
  4. The additional state exemption form will be submitted to a new state attorney general office to get the state tax exemption.
  5. Sales tax permit will be obtained from the department of revenue where a foreign entity of principle nonprofit is organized.
