Not-for-profit and charitable organizations are a vibrant, essential sector of the U.S. economy that contribute to our society in immeasurable ways. Yet, they face intense competition for funding and resources—and encounter unique legal challenges that require specialized knowledge.
We work with you to address your legal questions so you can keep your focus on your impact.
Our attorneys counsel not-for-profit organizations of every size. From small local organizations to nationwide entities with well-known missions, we advise public charities, private foundations, philanthropic trusts, universities, cultural institutions and community-focused organizations.
Not-for-profit organizations face unique compliance burdens private companies do not encounter. We advise and assist you in setting up and managing proper entities to avoid tax-exempt and compliance problems, allowing you to dedicate your time and energy to your charitable purposes.
For individuals, we help develop charitable giving strategies that are in line with your goals, including naming rights, governing gifting responsibilities and establishing arrangement for how gifted funds should be used today and in the future, and social impact investing.
