I'm looking for a concise set of steps that explain how to start a non-profit group in the state of Missouri. Specifically, what requirements must the group meet? Does there need to be a board of directors? What forms are involved? What are the stipulations of running a non-profit under the umbrella of a for-profit business?

Hello. The Missouri Department of Economic Development has an excellent summary of the steps of forming a nonprofit at: http://www.ded.mo.gov/cd/NFP_checklist.htm Also see the instructions on this form: Articles of Incorporation of a Nonprofit Corporation and Domestic Nonprofit Instruction Sheet (Corp. 52) http://www.sos.mo.gov/forms/corp/corp52.pdf As indicated on that form, a board of directors is required. There must be at least three directors. Also, each corporation may have a president and/or chairman, secretary and treasurer. The same individual may simultaneously hold more than one office. Here are the other relevant forms: Application for Reservation of a Name: http://www.sos.mo.gov/forms/corp/be1.pdf Articles of Incorporation of a Nonprofit Corporation and Domestic Nonprofit Instruction Sheet (Corp. 52) http://www.sos.mo.gov/forms/corp/corp52.pdf IRS Form 1023, Application for Tax-Exempt Status. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1023.pdf Apply for Federal Employer ID Number (EIN) ? SS4. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fss4.pdf Missouri Sales/Use Tax Exemption Application (Form 1746 Rev. 10-98) http://www.dor.mo.gov/tax/business/sales/forms/1746f.pdf Missouri charity registration: http://www.ago.mo.gov/checkacharity/charityregistration.htm ------ search strategy: nonprofit site:mo.gov Good luck!
