This question is about creating a non-profit with (for now) just myself as a board member.
Information at the IRS website for registering a non-profit corporation includes this page with suggested language for the AoI ("Articles of Incorporation").
The first paragraph in the provided example AoI says:
Articles of Incorporation of ____. The undersigned, a majority of whom are citizens of the United States, desiring to form a Non-Profit Corporation under the Non-Profit Corporation Law
I wanted to start a 501(c)(3) non-profit that can accept contributions for supporting causes that I care about. I live in USA but I am currently not a U.S. citizen but a 'green card' holder.
I know that I am able to register a corporation (such as LLC) in the State I live in.
What I am uncertain about in this case, because of that sample text, are the federal requirements for registering the corporation as a non-profit.
In order to be able to register as a non-profit, do I need to be a U.S. citizen?
