Articles of incorporation Word document with 501c3 language

As you may be finding out, no secretary of state or corporations division provides an articles of incorporation template that has 501c3 tax exemption language on it in a usable format. In fact, no website, period provides this for free.

You’ll see our free non-profit articles of incorporation template here in a usable word doc format that already has the IRS required language to incorporate your non-profit according to tax exempt regulations. We provide some state specific templates as well. If you hire us as your registered agent you’ll enjoy our immediate non-profit tools that help you form your non-profit and keep your non-profit in compliance with the state.

The one thing to remember is that this is a generic non-profit incorporation template. Please either take a look at our state resources page and pull up the template the state provides which will have a couple state specific items, but no tax exemption language, OR an easier option is to just hire us as your nonprofit registered agent in the state you are incorporating in. You’ll see the nonprofit form the state provides in your online registered agent account. You can compare that with this 501 c 3 template and then follow the filing instructions in your account to incorporate your non-profit corporation.

Our free nonprofit articles of incorporation template includes:

  • Corporate name requirements
