Unincorporated Entity

An unincorporated nonprofit organization consists of two or more members joined by mutual consent to carry out a charitable, educational, religious, literary or scientific purpose of its members.

Trade Name

A nonprofit organization that uses a name to identify itself in pursuit of its mission must file a Trade Name Registration with the Secretary of State. (See North Dakota Trade Name Registration)

The Trade Name Registration:

  • Affords exclusive right to that name in the State of North Dakota. No other organization or business may file a name with the Secretary of State that is the same as, or deceptively similar, to any registered name.
  • Establishes a public record from which the name of the corporation using the name can be identified.
