Helping Start Your Non-profit So You Can Get Started Helping the World
Eco-fyle is here to help get your nonprofit corporation up and running.
You’re dedicated to changing the world, either through a common cause, a belief, or a plan of action, and now you want to start a business that does the same. Whatever your cause, starting a nonprofit is an exciting and fulfilling way of making a true difference in the world. Starting a nonprofit can be a simple and easy process when handled correctly. Here we’ll give you all the information you need to get started on your nonprofit corporation.
There are over 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the US. The purpose of these nonprofit corporations is to donate revenue to achieve a specific, publicly beneficial goal. Being a nonprofit does not mean the organization won’t make a profit. Rather, all the money made must go straight back into the organization by paying employee salaries, administrative expenses, and other overhead costs. No one person or group owns the nonprofit and any sales benefit the whole organization rather than individuals. Only those who pass the stringent standards set forth by the government can achieve tax-exempt, or 501c3 status. Creating incorporation papers is just the first step towards becoming a completely recognized nonprofit organization.

Benefits of Filing as a Nonprofit
Tax Exempt Status
Nonprofits can apply for both federal and state tax-exempt status, a huge benefit for nonprofits, allowing them to dedicate their resources to their mission. That tax-exempt status applies both to revenue and donations.
Limited Liability Protection
Founders and members are generally not held responsible for a nonprofit’s debts. Your personal assets will be protected if your nonprofit accrue debt and liabilities.
Establishing your business as a nonprofit may make people more likely to contribute their time or money to your cause.
Donors can use their donations as tax write-off which is an additional incentive to contribute to your cause.

Dissolving a nonprofit differs from dissolving a typical corporation. You are not allowed to give away or sell the assets of your nonprofit but must transfer them to a similar nonprofit. There are several forms you will need to file before making this process official, all of which Eco-fyle can assist you with.
