BMS Building Corporation Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws: What is the BMS Building Corporation?
The BMS Building Corporation is a Minnesota nonprofit corporation that was chartered on October 1, 1999. The BMS Building Corporation was also designated as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service on December 23, 1999. The Corporation was chartered as a support organization for Bluffview Montessori School, a Minnesota Charter School.
Bluffview, as a Minnesota charter school, cannot itself use public funding to build a schoolhouse. It can, however, use state Lease Aid to pay rent to a landlord for such a building. When Bluffview Montessori School decided it needed a building of its own, it became necessary to seek out a landlord who would promise to build and dedicate the services of a new school building solely to Bluffview. That assurance could only be provided by creating a “landlord” that Bluffview Montessori School controlled. That landlord is the BMS Building Corporation.
