Non-Profit Corporate Certificate of Incorporation

This Form is the Certificate of Incorporation of a non-profit corporation. It should be incorporated under the non-profit corporation statute of the state in which it will do business. It is intended that this corporation will apply for federal tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Note the various prohibitions on profit-making activities and the requirement that upon dissolution, all of the assets of the corporation must pass to another exempt organization – not to the private benefit of any individual.

Organizational Minutes of Trustees of Non-Profit Corporation

This Form is a Unanimous Consent in lieu of a meeting of the Trustees to organize a non-profit corporation and approve and adopt the other documents necessary in the formation of the entity. This document also elects the officers of the corporation. If an actual meeting were held, formal minutes would accomplish the same ends as this Unanimous Consent.

When a client is creating a tax- exempt entity or a private foundation as part of his or her estate plan, the formation document of the tax-exempt entity, appropriate corporate by-laws and this Form of Consent are among the documents the IRS requires to approve the application for tax exemption.

By-Laws Of A Non-Profit Corporation

This is a Form of By-laws for a non-profit corporation that will apply to the IRS for tax-exempt status as a private foundation. The By-laws are designed to address and comply with all of the IRS requirements in connection with self-dealing, disposition of assets upon dissolution, etc.

Note that this corporation begins with the designation of Members. The Members then select trustees, who in turn select the corporate officers. Typically, the Members are persons of the family that will be providing the consideration for the foundation. They may, but need not, also serve as trustees. Being designated as Members may give the founding family a greater sense of control over the corporation. If desired, the “level” of Members may be eliminated, and the corporation managed by its trustees who will, in turn, designate the officers of the corporation.
