Typically, a nonprofit is a “separate entity” for tax, governance and management purposes, in a similar way to an LLC or corporation. Technically, a not-for-profit isn’t generally a separate legal entity, and doesn’t have a separate legal existence to its members. Not-for-profits are less common than nonprofits.
