Not-for-Profit Incorporation Services

The VLA provides incorporation services for arts-related groups wishing to incorporate as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit incorporation. Members of such groups are asked to first attend one of our informational seminars, held approximately every six weeks at Goodwin Procter LLP in Downtown Boston (see below).

Not-for-Profit Informational Seminars

Learn how, when, why (or why-not) to incorporate your organization as a 501(c)3. Led by experienced non-profit attorneys, these seminars provide information about the complicated process of formalizing a nonprofit in Massachusetts, including state reporting and regulation, ongoing IRS reporting and regulation, and federal tax exemption. 

These seminars, occuring frequently throughout the year, are a collaboration with Lawyer's Clearinghouse and sponsored by Goodwin Procter LLP.  Please see our events calendar to view and register for upcoming seminars.
