A Foreign Non-Profit Corporation is a more complex business structure. As a chartered legal entity, a corporation has certain rights, privileges, and liabilities beyond those of an individual.

A Foreign Non-Profit Corporation is organized and chartered under the laws of another state, government, or country.
