Interested in even greater savings? Be sure to check out the toolkit page where you will find groups of related chapters at reduced price.

These chapters are a result of decades of experience by a nonprofit lawyer and a nonprofit manager, accountant and consultant. Nonprofits throughout the United States can find helpful information in all of these chapters. You need to be aware that state law plays a role in many parts of a nonprofit's functioning. Each state's laws are often vastly different from those of other states. Keep in mind that, in those cases where state law comes into play, the information in the chapters on this website is based on Oregon law. You need to be sure that your nonprofit complies with the laws of the state where you incorporate and/or operate.
