Our attorneys work with a wide variety of non-profit organizations ranging from larger established institutions to start-up advocacy organizations. These include colleges, schools, camps, religious organizations, youth groups, trade associations, arts organizations, lobbying committees, and a range of educational, advocacy, and charitable groups. Non-profit organizations face a number of unique challenges.
Our services for non-profits include:
We form non-profit entities and work with accountants to help establish and maintain their tax-exempt status.
Governance & Business Matters
Non-profit groups often require the same business expertise that would be relevant to a for-profit enterprise. We also guide non-profit clients through the intricacies of the fiduciary responsibilities among the institution, its board, and its members. We work with non-profit boards in establishing policies and procedures, managing problems between the board and employees, and facilitating retreats.
We can assist in developing fund-raising and charitable giving strategies, and help non-profit institutions achieve their stated goals.
