MORIN Entertainment Law is a boutique firm that specializes in Nonprofit Law.

Many businesses organize under the 501(c) section of the Internal Revenue Code for its favorable tax treatment and access to funding. In addition to setting up your business as a nonprofit under state law, we further help you to establish and maintain your tax-exempt status under federal law.

How to Form a Nonprofit

Status Filings

Filings are on state and federal levels. State levels require nonprofit corporation registration and charity permits for organizations intending to solicit donations. Federal level requires an application for tax-exempt status.

  • Nonprofit Corporation Registration
  • Charity Permit Application
  • Application for Tax-Exempt Status
  • Corporate Governance

    In addition to completing the requisite filings, charitable organizations are subject to requirements in their corporate governance documentation, which includes organizational policies and procedures. We draft these documents with these requirements in mind.

  • Articles of Incorporation
  • Articles of Amendment
  • Corporate Nonprofit Bylaws
  • Organizational Minutes
  • Conflict of Interest Policy
  • Document Retention Policy
