NONPROFIT CORPORATION STATUTE REVISED
NOTICE: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The nonprofit statute has been revised. Corporations are now required to be classified in one of three categories. For a few corporations, the category is designated by statute. For most nonprofit corporations, the following tests apply:
1. "Mutual benefit" corporation means a corporation which does not come within the definition of public benefit or religious corporation.
2. "Public benefit" corporation means a corporation which:
(a) is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or is organized for a public or charitable purpose;
(b) on dissolution must distribute its assets to an organization organized for public or charitable purpose, to a religious corporation, to the United States, to a state or to an organization which is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code; and
(c) does not come within the definition of religious corporation.
3. "Religious" corporation means a corporation which is organized primarily or exclusively for religious purposes.
