Most organizations trying to gain legal nonprofit status don't have the money to pay a lawyer thousands of dollars for help. Fortunately, they don't have to.
In this definitive guide for anyone who wants to start a nonprofit organization in California, corporation expert Attorney Anthony Mancuso shows you step by step how to form and operate a tax-exempt corporation.
How to Form a Nonprofit Corporation in California includes complete instructions for obtaining federal 501(c)(3) tax-exemption and for qualifying for public charity status with the IRS. It also provides:
line-by-line instructions for completing your IRS tax exemption application
instructions and completed sample clauses for preparing Articles of Incorporation
ready-to-use bylaws for membership and non-membership nonprofits
ready-to-use minutes for the organizational meeting
state sheets with California's specific nonprofit legal and tax requirements
This 9th edition has been revised to include the most up-to-date tax and legal information, and it includes all the forms for articles, bylaws and minutes, both as tear-outs and on a CD-ROM.
This definitive guide to forming a nonprofit corporation in California is also available in a handy new format: a corporate records binder. Look up The California Nonprofit Corporation Kit for more details.
