Developing Articles of Incorporation is the next step in filing with your state and getting your nonprofit established. Now, every state is different, and you can visit your State’s nonprofit resources (link on www.grantwritingandfunding.com) to get a link for different state requirements. Sometimes states have very basic Articles of Incorporation to easily fill out in their own format, but for many you have to develop your own. For this podcast, we are going to give a basic outline of Articles of Incorporation.

If you would like to download a free copy of this, please visit https://grantwritingandfunding.podia.com/article-of-incorporation-template.

Why do you need Articles of Incorporation?
1) Articles are required for starting a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
2) Articles will also give your nonprofit guidance in how it should operate.

As you will most likely have new board members come on from time to time it is good to have guidance for the structure of your nonprofit.

Articles of Incorporation act like a constitution for your nonprofit.

They give the governing requirements.

For you grant writers, you may get asked to help start nonprofits. I know I get this request quite often, so it is good for me to have a Nonprofit toolkit and to have a template to work from!

I am going to give a basic outline to formulate Articles of Incorporation for you nonprofit in the podcast. Now is your time and get to your computer to type up this outline or if you would rather a downloadable Word doc, please visit https://grantwritingandfunding.podia.com/article-of-incorporation-template to get your downloadable.
