Nonprofits offer certain benefits that regular for-profit corporations lack. Major benefits include the following:

  • Limited liability protection. Directors, officers, and members usually are not held personally liable for the organization’s debts and activities. Incorporating your nonprofit can help protect your assets.
  • Tax-exempt status. Nonprofits can apply for both federal, state, and local  tax-exempt status, allowing them to devote a larger proportion of their resources to achieving their goals.
  • Access to grants. Some nonprofits are eligible to receive public and private grants or government funding.
  • Tax-deductible donations. Donors can make tax-deductible donations to most nonprofit corporations.
  • Low cost postage rates. Many nonprofits are eligible for reduced postage rates—approximately 40% lower than the regular rate for commercial mailers.
