Stage 3 - Incorporation

Incorpation and Tax Exemption

Are your School Founders up for the challenge? The mechanics of starting a school can be challenging. In today’s complicated environment, the need to work smarter and be ready for the day-one of school opening is critical. With proper planning, founders can be prepared to start the school of their dreams and manage costs and project development effectively, establishing a school for generations to come. Provided herein are our time-tested stages for starting a school.

In Stage 3, you need to file for your incorporation/society papers with the appropriate Province or State agency. The lawyer on your Steering Committee will deal with this. Establishing incorporation will limit liability in the case of lawsuits, create a stable image, extend the life of the school beyond the founders, and provide an insurable entity. A 3rd party lawyer should be consulted. Submit as early in the process your tax exemption application with appropriate authorities to obtain your non-profit status. You can then begin to solicit tax deductible donations.
