What is a Yayasan (Foundation) in Indonesia, and can a foreigner establish one?

When you first visit Bali, you'll be captivated by its beauty. But as you settle in, you might notice areas needing support, prompting you to consider setting up a Yayasan, or nonprofit organization. Yayasan aims to address various humanitarian, religious, or social issues but requires following specific legal guidelines.

Steps to consider:

1. Choose a unique name that hasn’t been taken.

2. Establish an organizational structure with roles like Chairman, Secretary, and Treasurer.

3. Check if your role will require a specific stay permit.

4. Prepare the funds sufficiently

5. Check your Tax obligation.

6. Register the Yayasan with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.

Consulting a reputable notary is recommended to help with the setup.
