Create Your Nonprofit Corporate Binder
Are you ready to organize the nonprofit? We recommend you purchase a binder to keep physical copies of your corporate records and proceedings readily available.
Creating a corporate binder for the nonprofit is important for maintaining IRS compliance.
Did you know you must keep proper records, or you could lose your corporate or tax-exempt status?
What’s in the binder?
the Articles of Incorporation
minutes of your organizational meeting (or first directors meeting)
a list of the names and addresses of your directors*
for a membership organization, a membership roster listing the names and addresses of your current members*
minutes of all annual and special meetings of directors and members (if any), and
written consents to any actions taken by the board or members.
501c3 Approval Letter*
* Some documents you may not have due to the organizational structure of the nonprofit such as the list of directors or members.
That’s all you must do to create a nonprofit binder.
