Frequently asked questions

Which groups qualify for 501(c)(3) status?

Ones that benefit the general public, such as charitable, educational, literary, religious, and scientific organizations.

Which groups don’t qualify for 501(c)(3) status?

Civic leagues, homeowner’s associations, and groups endorsing a political candidate are common types of nonprofits that don’t qualify for 501(c)(3) status.

How do I get 501(c)(3) status?

After you file your articles of incorporation with the state, file a Form 1023 or Form 1023-EZ with the IRS. Tip: File a Form 1023-EZ with us to save time.

What’s the difference between a public charity and a private foundation?

Both have 501(c)(3) status, but how they get funding differs. Public charities typically get funding through the general public and government. Private foundations typically get funding from a few individuals, a family, or a corporation.

Do I need to incorporate my nonprofit?

No, but there are many advantages. Incorporating helps protect your personal assets, build credibility with potential donors, and unlock funding reserved for nonprofits with an official corporate structure.
