“Non-profit organization” is a broad-based term that encompasses all organizations that are known as charities, not-for-profits and educational and religious organizations. Not-for-profit organizations are regulated by local, state and federal laws. The purpose of a non-profit corporation or association is to conduct business for the benefit of the general public without shareholders and a profit motive. Nonprofit corporations are created according to state law. Like for-profit corporations, nonprofit corporations must file certificates of formation with the Secretary of State and pay a fee, create articles of incorporation, hold regular meetings, and satisfy other obligations to achieve and sustain corporate status.
