Incorporation benefits for non-profit organizations and charities include the following:
- The corporate names of incorporated non-profit organizations are legally protected to a greater extent than those of unincorporated associations.
- Incorporation generally shields the members of your organization from personal liability.
- By incorporating your organization, its independent and separate legal status allows the organization to continue to exist and operate even if the individual founders cease their involvement or pass away.
- After completing the not-for-profit incorporation process, your charitable organization may have better success in acquiring both public and private donations.
