Incorporate an NGO


In Nigeria, NGOs usually register as Incorporated Trustees. Nigerian NGO Registration is more complex than company registration.
Step 1: Name Availability Search
The first step is to do a name availability search with the Corporate Affairs Commission. Acceptable names for an NGO often end with:
Foundation
Trust
Organisation
Association
Network
Initiative
Step 2: Newspaper Publication
The second step is to publish your approved name in 2 national newspapers and one local paper.

Step 3: Submit IT Form 1
Finally, submit your complete form to the CAC with 3 copies of:
  • Application letter.
  • CAC Application “IT Form 1”. Signed by chairman and secretary.
  • Constitution of your company.
  • Minutesf Meeting(MoM) where trustees were appointed. Signed by the chairman and the secretary.
  • MoM where special rules were adopted. Signed by the chairman and the secretary.
  • Trustee declaration forms. The forms must be declared by each trustee before a High Court. You may choose a Federal High Court or a State High Court.
  • Pay the incorporation fee to CAC. The fee is payable at a bank, or online.
  • At least 3 original newspapers.

Is an Incorporated Trustee right for me?
Incorporated Trustees is used for: charities, trade unions, community based organisations, social clubs, religious groups, churches, mosques, places of worship, women’s groups, youth clubs, professional groups and political parties.
To be frank, there are two options when registering an NGO: Incorporated Trustee or a company limited by guarantee. (We always recommend Incorporated Trustees for an NGO and if you would like to read more on why, click here.)
What is a trustee?
A trustee is just like a director. But, a trustee is not concerned with profit. A trustee’s job is to make sure that the NGO maintains its aims and achieves its goals.
