I know a non profit can have a for profit subsidiary, but can a for profit have a non profit subsidiary?
Hello and Welcome. My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Yes a for profit may create a subsidiary controlled nonprofit. Typically a wholly controlled non-profit subsidiary is used to serve as private foundations for the for-profits philanthropy.

However, the IRS carefully scrutinizes such arrangements for possible private benefit to the parent for-profit. The purpose of the non-profit must be significantly different than the purpose of the for-profit.

I hope this helps. All my best & encouragement.
