A: There is no deadline to file an amendment.

A not-for-profit corporation may amend its Certificate of Incorporation from time to time by filing a Certificate of Amendment under Section 803 of the Not-for-Profit Corporation Law.

The document may contain any of the information that may be contained in a Certificate of Incorporation (name change, revision to the purpose clause, etc.).

The Certificate of Amendment may amend or add any provision that may be lawfully contained in the Certificate of Incorporation.
