So You Want to Start a Nonprofit?

At both the state and federal level, there are filing requirements, fundraising regulations, restrictions on political activity and other “rules of the road” that a nonprofit must know, especially if you are a charitable organization. Our experienced faculty will explain:

  • What nonprofit model is right for your or your client’s organization and mission
  • Key distinctions between being a “private foundation” and a “public charity”
  • How to stay compliant and avoid problems with the IRS, PA Attorney General and other regulatory agencies
  • Understand the IRS definition of “unrelated business income” and explore the financial implications for a nonprofit
  • How social media has impacted the nonprofit community

Walk through the Steps to 501(c)(3) Status

Using a step by step approach, the presenters will cover the basics of incorporating and drafting articles and bylaws and share tips on how to:

  • Weigh the benefits and burdens of being tax exempt
  • Complete IRS form 1023 to apply for federal tax exempt status
  • Fill out the form so the application process goes smoothly
  • Be clear about why a 501(c)(3) is not exempt from all taxes at the state level
