Nonprofit corporations

Nonprofit corporations are organizations formed to further the interests and objectives of educational, religious, social, charitable, and cultural groups. No stock is issued, but the members of the organization enjoy the advantage of limited liability.


Nonprofit corporation is an incorporated enterprise (e.g., university, charity, church) that is not driven by a profit-seeking motive.
