How to Set Up a Nonprofit in California

California law uses the term “nonprofit corporation” as a company that doesn't distribute profits to its directors or officers the way a corporation does. It may earn income by engaging in business activities, and it may have paid employees. With this in mind, however, it is not a conventional business in which the owners get a share of the profits. Religious organizations, social clubs, and charities are all eligible for nonprofit corporation status in California. You don't need a lawyer to set up a nonprofit corporation, but you should have your documents prepared by a qualified professional. The best choice is to hire a registered legal document assistant to prepare your forms.
