Nonprofit & Tax-Exempt Organizations

We work with founders and directors of nonprofit organizations to start, build, and protect their mission.

Our team understands the importance of serving the community with purpose. 

Our attorneys have years of experience working with nonprofit and other tax-exempt organizations, ranging from new startups to multi-million dollar foundations.  Navigating a nonprofit does not need to be overwhelming.  We simplify the process and provide turnkey solutions.  If you are a new nonprofit, we will work with you to properly incorporate with the State, prepare your initial paperwork, establish your board of directors, and then file with the IRS for tax-exempt status. 

Below are a few of the questions we will help you answer:

  1. Do I need to setup a Corporation or LLC?
  2. Does my mission qualify for tax-exempt status?
  3. How do I obtain tax-exempt status with the IRS?
  4. What is the difference between a public charity and private foundation?
  5. How many individuals need to be on my Board of Directors?
  6. Can I pay myself a salary?  

Our team will walk you through the process and answer each question along the way.
