Articles of Incorporation

Articles of Incorporation are official statements of creation of an organization filed with the appropriate state agency. This protects the founding director, board members and staff from legal liabilities incurred by the organization. Thus, the corporation is the holder of debts and liabilities, not the individuals and officers who work for the organization. Each state determines the specific requirements of how to incorporate. You can obtain the information you need to proceed. from your state Attorney General’s office or your state Secretary’s office.
