Forming Nonprofit in Alabama

The Process

Alabama nonprofits are formed by first reserving the desired company name, then filing the original and two copies of the Domestic Nonprofit Corporation Certificate of Formation and the Certificate of Name Reservation with the Probate Judge in the county where the newly formed nonprofit's registered office is located. The Probate Judge will collect the Secretary of State filing fee and forward it, along with the filed copy, to the Secretary of State for further recording. The entire filing process takes anywhere from 3 to 4 weeks. To learn more about forming nonprofit in Alabama you can visit Alabama State government website.
