Nonprofit Publications provides expert information on nonprofit legal, financial, tax exemption, and management issues in everyday language. We work to help Board members, founders, new managers, and experienced leaders in community-based nonprofits succeed. We provide clear explanations of the state laws, IRS rules and processes, and accounting and financial reporting requirements that have the greatest impact on nonprofit corporations.


We have created toolkits as a way to offer groups of related chapters at a reduced price for your convenience. Be sure to check back as we plan to add additional bundles in the near future.

If you are looking for only individual chapters be sure to visit the Chapter Downloads section of the site.

The chapters contained in these bundles 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.
