Nonprofit corporations are formed under state law. The purpose of a charitable nonprofit must be for the public interest and common good.
In Michigan, nonprofit corporations are formed pursuant to the Nonprofit Corporation Act (i.e., 1982 PA 162, MCL 450.2101 – 450.3192). In practice, however, the acquisition of the coveted 501(c)(3) status—i.e., exemption for federal taxation on profits—is what make the difference both in terms of sustainability and legitimacy in the eyes of donors and grant makers.
