Nonprofit / Charities Law Definition

The nonprofit and charities practice involves all respects of legal works relating to nonprofit and charitable activities. This includes work for organizations such as nonprofit corporations, charitable trusts, trade associations, professional societies, private foundations, advocacy groups, private and public schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, and many other types of nonprofit and charitable organizations. The scope of work undertaken typically includes nonprofit corporate law, corporate governance, tax exemption, compensation and benefits, planned giving, tax-exempt financing, business transactions involving one or more nonprofits, and federal and state compliance. While federal tax law plays a major role in advising most nonprofits and charities, state law statutory and governmental compliance issues are also very important.
