Washington Nonprofit Corporations

In 2021 the Washington State legislature passed new laws for nonprofit corporations.  The new laws go into effect January 1, 2022 and will change nonprofit corporation documents to meet the new requirements under RCW 24.03A.

The Washington Secretary of State's office is currently making significant changes to the online filing process for nonprofit corporations.  While those changes are being implemented, nonprofit corporation filings will not be available online beginning 12/30/21.  Any nonprofit corporation documents needing to be filed in January and February 2022 will need to be filed using paper filing options.

The new nonprofit corporation documents with instructions will be available on 12/28/2021 on the State's website at:  The paper forms are processed in the order received, or an expedited option is available for an additional fee.

Please contact a Unisearch service representative today for assistance.
