In practice, a non profit is essentially a business. In order to qualify as a non profit, however, the business is subject to federal and state legal and regulatory requirements. At the federal level, non profits are governed by IRS requirements and regulations. At the state level, they are governed by state laws and fundraising regulations. Watchdog agencies and accrediting organizations also influence operations and regulatory requirements for non profits.
We can help you identify the various sources of governance standards for your non profit and help you comply with legal requirements so you can focus on your mission.
