If you have any questions about charitable organizations call Arizona nonprofit corporation attorneys Richard Keyt, JD, LL.M (tax law) (father) at 480-664-7478 or his son former CPA Richard C. Keyt, JD, MS (accounting) at 480-664-7472. We will use the information you submit on this questionnaire to prepare all of the documents needed to form the corporation.
Before you start to enter data you need to do the following:
1. Check the Arizona Corporation Commission’s name availability database and make sure the name you want for your nonprofit corporation satisfies Arizona’s naming requirements. Although Arizona law does not require that the name end with Inc., Incorporated, Corp. or Corporation I recommend that you include one of those four suffixes so that when the corporation signs contracts or holds itself out to the public it will be giving notice to the world that they are dealing with a corporation. This is a good thing to do to protect the officers, directors and employees from a claim by a third party that the third party thought it was dealing with a person operating a business as a sole proprietorship or general partnership.
2. Have the following information available:
- Name of the corporation. If you are not sure of the name just enter name to come later or pending or undecided in the Questionnaire.
- The corporation’s place of business in Arizona. It can be a home address, business address or UPS mailbox, but not a U.S. post office box. If you don’t have an Arizona address or if you don’t want your address to be disclosed on the public records of the corporation then purchase our address service for $100/year. It is easy to change the address after the corporation is formed.
- Name, address (any where in the world is good), phone number and email address of every officer and director know at the time the Articles of Incorporation will be filed with the Arizona Corporation Commission. Officers are the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. The President is the only required officer. One person can be the sole director and the President. Additional officers and directors can be added after the corporation is formed.
