Are you running a volunteer-run organization? Or are you part of a nonprofit that needs to formalize its legal structure?
Creating a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation might sound complicated, but it doesn’t have to be! One of our volunteer lawyers, Kendall Macrostie of The Mlnarik Law Group, wrote an easy-to-follow resource that demystifies the process, starting with getting your legal entity formed and filing that Form 1023 for tax exemption. Check out our recently published Legal Cafe Bite on Nonprofit Formation here, which summarizes the steps that you will need to take to comply with both state laws and IRS regulations.
If you need more guidance after reading the Legal Cafe bite, you can sign up to talk to an attorney at our donation-based Legal Cafes. They happen three times a month in locations all over the East Bay and in San Francisco. You can find a list of Legal Cafe dates and locations here!
