What's a Nonprofit?

If you are trying to figure out if your venture is a Nonprofit, it might help to explore some common characteristics of nonprofits:

Serve a Charitable Cause

Nonprofits are established to serve a specific charitable purpose, such as supporting early-childhood education or increasing green space in the city

Revenues Reinvested

Nonprofits can be grant-funded, have a business model, or both. However, unlike their for-profit counterparts, revenues generated are reinvested in their charitable cause

Nonprofit Legal Structure

Most nonprofit organizations have a special 501(c)(3) tax designation, which allows them to take donations and not pay common business and operational taxes
