According to the IRS, the purpose of a nonprofit must be charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering national or international amateur sports competition, and preventing cruelty to children or animals. It is not because you do not plan to make any money.
Things to remember before starting a nonprofit:
The IRS has 29 501(c) designations, including the most popular 501(c)(3). A 501(c)(3) designation means donations made to your organization are tax deductible. For the purposes of this guide, nonprofit designation will refer to a 501(c)(3) organization.
