How a Nonprofit Merger Works

There are four basic steps to nonprofit mergers. During your consult with our nonprofit legal team, we'll discuss the terms and possible timeline for your specific situation. Some mergers are more straightforward than others.

Letter of Intent

This document establishes the intent of the merging nonprofits and often acknowledges key points of negotiation.

Due Diligence

Due diligence protects the merging nonprofits and ensures that the mission remains at the forefront throughout the entire process.

Merger Agreement and Negotiation

After due diligence is complete, your nonprofit attorney will draft your Merger Agreement and negotiation begins.

Articles of Merger

Once the nonprofits reach an agreement, new articles are filed with the Secretary of State as a final step.
