Incorporation is often the first concrete step on the path to creating a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. But is it the right step for your organization? Do you even need to incorporate? Can you afford to skip this step?
Incorporation is more than just filling out an online form. Nonprofit founders must understand what the answers to the form’s questions mean and how they might affect the nonprofit’s future and its ability to become tax-exempt. And what about bylaws? Find out about these important documents at the next program from the Legal Center for Nonprofits, on Tuesday, October 14, at 6:00 pm, at the Legal Center for Nonprofits, 412 County Street, New Bedford (inside the Inter-Church Council house). Admission for this program is $10, payable at the door. Space is limited. Pre-registration is recommended. To register, contact Attorney Linnea Michel at (508) 264-5996 or email Linnea@LegalCenterforNonprofits.org.
