Non-Profits

Non-Profits

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:

Formation

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.

Fundraising

We can assist in developing fund-raising and charitable giving strategies, and help non-profit institutions achieve their stated goals.
