Non-Profit / Charities Law Definition

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