There is no minimum number of directors required for non-profit business entities in Pennsyvlania.  I would suggest at least 3.  Most have more because organizations often use those positions to attract people of influence in the community to participate in the organization.  501(c)(3) is a federal tax code designation for one type of a tax exempt entity.  Non-profit organization is not the same as a 501(c)(3).  State vs. federal law.  not all non-profit organizations are tax exempt. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
