We offer a comprehensive set of services in support of nonprofit organizations, including:

Formation
We help individuals at every step of forming a nonprofit organization, including establishing the corporate entity and preparing the application for federal income tax exemption.

Compliance
We help new and established organizations comply with federal and state laws and regulations governing such matters as tax-exemption, charitable registrations and solicitations, and lobbying and political activities.

Governance
We help organizational leaders draft and adopt board policies on a broad range of issues, including conflict of interest, financial transparency, gift acceptance, lobbying/political activities, compensation, and fundraising.

Legislative Advocacy
We provide organizations with effective and valuable guidance on carrying out their advocacy goals in compliance with legal limitations on lobbying and political activities. Our legislative services include preparing guidelines on lobbying limitations tailored to the organization’s charitable activities; developing federal and state legislative strategies; and drafting briefing materials for public officials on policy issues.

Contracts and Other Agreements
We help organizations protect their charitable interests by drafting and/or reviewing contracts, MOUs, and other formal agreements with third parties.

Fiscal Sponsorship
We help organizations craft fiscal sponsorship arrangements that protect the tax exempt status of the sponsoring organization and the fiscal objectives of the sponsored organization.
