RENOSI strongly recommends that all nonprofit organizations be incorporated. Filing articles of incorporation protects your employees or volunteers from personal legal liability and gives credibility to your organization, among other benefits. Without incorporation, any legal claims that are brought against your organization must be brought against the individual employees or volunteers because there is no legally incorporated entity to sue.
Under our current client arrangement, we provide the service* of filing the Articles of Incorporation for all new clients. But we have created this DIY guide for those who would like to perform this filing on their own.*Additional filing fees charged by your state are not included in the cost of services and must be invoiced separately.
