So I’m doing it. I’m looking into becoming an incorporated non profit organization in the State of New Hampshire. I started my journey with LegalZoom.com and for $100 or more, they will incorporate you and handle all the paperwork. I’ve also been looking into what it means to be a non-profit organization in the State of New Hampshire. I don’t know whether or not to seek Tax Exempt charitable status or not yet. We are going to be involved in some charity work. We have a charity benefit coming up in May For Adam Aries Night, but I’m not sure if a charity is the direction I will be taking sourbrains.org in. I imagine that if I DO become a non-profit organization, I will choose to be tax exempt. But Now I’m just trying to figure out what it involves, and the benefits of tax exempt weighed against the responsibilities, and risks. I found some helpful information on the State of New Hampshire’s website for non profits, but I know this is going to be a long drawn out decision, and will require the help of everyone else involved in this. I’m going to need everyone’s input before doing this. But everyone keeps asking me what direction I plan on taking this blog into… well… this seems like one of the options we have that is a very real and obtainable possibility. I think I’m going to have to purchase this book and give it a good read.
Here are some invaluable videos on how to become a charity in the State of New Hampshire.
