โš–๏ธ Nonprofit or For-Profit?

In the simplest terms, youโ€™d want to structure your legal entity based on where you expect your revenue to come from (yes, non-profits still need income to cover operating expenses).

๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

If a majority of the revenue you generate will come from grants or donations, then structuring your company as a non-profit is the best route for tax and legal protection.

๐Ÿ’ฏ

On the other hand, if you plan to generate revenue by engaging in economic activity, then youโ€™ll want to structure it as a for-profit entity, as a
C-Corp, S-Corp, or LLC
More on corporate motives...

๐Ÿ“Š Analysis Paralysis: B Corp or Benefit Corporation?

They
are
different


"The B Corp Certification is a third-party certification administered by the non-profit B Lab, based in part on a company's verified performance on the B Impact Assessment.

I wouldn't stress picking
between the two.
