Michael: I’ve kept one eye on the nonprofit dissolution question the last couple decades, but I can’t say I’ve seen clear legal guidance on what must be kept. The National Council on Nonprofit keeps a pretty nice summary of general considerations (https://www.councilofnonprofits.org/running-nonprofit/governance-leadership/dissolving-nonprofit-corporation), but there’s nothing in particular there about how long records must be kept. I’d guess there might be general guidance relating to corporations that could vary from state to state.
If you were in the big city, I’d suggest hiring a vendor that would scan all those documents down into a thumb drive. I don’t know if that’s an option where you are —
