I'm new here and have looked through the archive of subjects and topics regarding applications for 501(c)(3).

Our PTO has existed for many years, had one other name before. We have never been incorporated, ages ago we had an EIN number, but under the old name. We have By-Laws, a governing board elected at the end of each school year for the next year, but nothing else.
