Starting a Florida Non-Profit Corporation requires dedication and patience. It requires strong organizational skills and responsibility to meet the non-profit's obligations. Many people do not understand that a Non-Profit Corporation is operated exactly like a Corporation. The only difference is that there are no stockholders. People can start a Non-Profit for a community, charity, foundation, trade groups, religious organization, and many other different types of purposes. You will need a minimum of three (3) people to be on the board of directors to obtain tax-exempt status.
