BYLAWS AND ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION
When starting a nonprofit, founders must be careful that their excitement for the organization’s work does not overshadow careful attention to legal requirements. Two of the most important legal documents, a nonprofit’s articles of incorporation and its bylaws, overlap in a few key instances yet are also quite distinct. Learn about the similarities and differences to ensure your organization is starting off on the right foot.
Every Board’s MUST-HAVE DOCUMENTS
Even the most organized, responsible, and amiable board needs to document its activities, internal rules, and processes. Some of the documentation is legally required while some is simply helpful to have. Some documents should be available to the public while others must be kept confidential. Some serve as guidelines for decision making while others are part of the record keeping. For a board that takes its fiduciary role seriously, written rules simply are part of necessary risk management.
