Not-for-Profit Corporation

Forming a New York not-for-profit corporation is a good decision for organizing a local nonprofit in New York. If you are thinking about starting a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) or other 501(c) tax-exempt organization, or non-governmental organization (NGO), we can also assist you in incorporating the corporation to begin the process.

A corporation is considered a “legal person” while humans are considered “natural persons.” As a person in its own right, the acts of a corporation are considered separate from those of its directors, officers and members, and the liabilities of a corporation generally cannot be attributed to them. Because of this, a New York not-for-profit corporation is a good choice to protect directors, officers and members of a nonprofit operating in New York from personal liability in the event of unexpected and unfortunate circumstances.
