Form Your California Nonprofit

Forming Nonprofit in California

The Process

California nonprofits are formed by filing Articles of Incorporation with California Secretary of State. The entire filing process in California greately depends on the season and the choice of expedited options. Generally it varies from 2 to 3 weeks with regular filing, but periodically can be as long as 2 month or as short as 1 week. Expedited options exist for extra fee. We recommend you to contact our office to check the most recent processing times. To learn more about forming a nonprofit in California you can visit California State government website.

 

NOTE: Once the nonprofit is formed, you must file Statement of Information – a document listing addresses, officers and directors of the nonprofit, as well as some other related information. No worries – our service covers filing of Statement of Information.

ALSO IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: Most municipal jurisdictions in California require businesses operating within the municipal limits to obtain a Business License. That includes home based business. Check with your municipal government if such license is required and how to obtain it (we also offer License Research service, and will research all licenses that your business might need).

Name Identifiers and Abbreviations

The name of the California nonprofit can have no identifier, or one of the listed below:

  • Inc.
