Our attorneys work with a wide variety of non-profit institutions, including colleges, schools, camps, churches and synagogues, youth groups, trade associations, lobbying committees, and a range of charitable groups. Though somewhat similar to business entities, non-profits face a number of unique challenges.
Our services for non-profits include:
We can form a non-profit entity and work with accountants to help establish and maintain its tax-exempt status.
We guide non-profit clients through the intricacies of the fiduciary responsibilities among the institution, its trustees, and its members. We have worked 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.
