The Nonprofit Corporation is a special type of business structure that exists to provide certain benefits to organizations with the main goal of serving the public. Much like other formal business types, those who run nonprofits are provided limited liability protection.
Nonprofits can receive state and federal exemptions from corporate income taxes (plus certain others) that other business structures must pay. A tax-exempt status isn't immediately granted to nonprofits, but will require a specific 501c3 application to obtain it.
A nonprofit organization exists separately from those who manage and direct it. Because of this, the organization will continue to run even if the person who leads it leaves the business. The longevity of the business makes it much more attractive for donors who want their contributions to impact long-term goals.
Nonprofits are afforded the same limited liability protection as LLCs. This means that the personal assets of directors and officers are considered separate from the personal interest invested in the company. With this protection, debts and liabilities incurred are the responsibility of the business rather than its members.

Nonprofits are unique in that they are able to raise capital through acquiring special grants, and that they can receive tax-exempt status. For charity organizations, or those focused on serving the greater good of their communities, it is usually the only logical choice of business structure.
There are no restrictions regarding who can form a Nonprofit organization.
As most Nonprofits are typically founded with the main goal of benefitting the general public, Nonprofits can become "tax exempt" entities. This means that they are free from paying a vast majority of the taxes that are levied on other types of organizations.
However, Nonprofits are not granted tax-exempt status automatically upon formation. After the organization is successfully formed with its state, it must file Form 1023 with the IRS to receive tax-exempt status. There may also be some state-level filing required to become tax exempt at the state level, depending on where your organization is located.
Yes. Swyft Filings assists with filing 501(c)(3) applications with the IRS. Learn more here.
The typical rule is that Nonprofits must have at least three board members to receive tax-exempt status from the IRS. However, it is possible to form a Nonprofit with only one founder.
