Entrepreneurs are always motivated to bridge the gap in the market, connecting the consumer with solutions to their needs. Thousands of businesses in the United States are formed each year on the very same idea – delivering a service or product to retain revenue. For-profit companies can be limited liability company’s (LLC), sole proprietorships, large corporations or partnerships. Each generates revenue in diverse ways, and tends to involve additional legislation, tax regulations and complex set-ups. In the same breath nonprofits have recently gained more interest from the market, not only for its attractive tax-exemption but how it supports helpless populations.
We all want to do good; donations or volunteering have become ways for individuals to give back to their communities. In due time, people will find that a greater need will outweigh their serving capacity and tend to look for ways to start their own nonprofit organization. TRUiC (The Really Useful Information Company) has helped thousands of Americans to start their own businesses, as they offer free guides and assistance for individuals to save on start-up costs.

Nonprofits, from the outside, may look complex. Finding investors, applying for government grants and thinking of ways to raise funds are still some of the basic problems nonprofits endure. TRUiC has built a way for any person to easily create a nonprofit, assisting with a step-by-step guide. TRUiC requires you to comply with certain government and IRS regulations for quick set-up of your nonprofit. What are the steps to setting up a nonprofit?
It’s easier than you think, and U.S. regulations make for convenient set-up:
1. Give your profit a name. It should resonate who you stand for, and your vision. Keep in mind that you should review your states’ business naming requirements. It should be something donors and interested members can easily recognize and want to become part of.
2. Who will be your registered agent? This individual or business will be acting as a liaison between your nonprofit and the state. The person or business can be anyone from your company, or perhaps even yourself. Just remember, you’ll be the one receiving all the legal paperwork throughout the process.
3. Choose directors and officers. The chain of command will have three directors who are not related to each other, responsible for the operational management, and officers (president or secretary) will have individual responsibilities. It’s important to choose your nonprofits most capable candidates, for suitable positions.
4. Create bylaws and conflicts of interest policy. It might seem complicated, but directors and officers have to decide what rules, regulations, laws and policies will be adopted to ensure the nonprofit will benefit the business and not individual members.
5. Submit articles of incorporation. Clearly ensure you meet state requirements in compliance with the IRS and that your nonprofit is eligible for 501(c)(3) status. For more information - do see what TRUiC has to say.
6. Get an employer identification number. Ultimately, an EIN will act as your company’s social security number, enabling you to get your business identified by the government. It can be obtained for free via the IRS, and only after the business has been established.
7. Get your 501(c)(3) Status. It’s very important that your nonprofit has at least three directors, filed your Articles of Incorporation, established bylaws and conflicts of interest policy and obtained an EIN number. This is crucial, as your tax-exemption application will depend on whether your organization fulfilled the required provisions set-out by federal laws.
Establishing your nonprofit is easier than that of an LLC or corporation and it offers better government compliance.
