Charities and non-profits are provided with special protections under tax law, as well as with other legal benefits due to their non-profit status. Becoming recognized as a not-for-profit entity can be a challenging endeavor and maintaining your status as a not-for-profit or charitable organization can also require strict compliance with reporting requirements and other financial and regulatory matters.
At Archer, we understand the special legal needs of not-for-profit and charitable organizations. Our tax lawyers have helped countless companies obtain not-for-profit or 501(3)(c) status and meet the legal requirements necessary to maintain that status and fulfill their tax obligations. Our corporate attorneys also help with other aspects of managing a charitable organization including fundraising matters and board or corporate governance matters, among other issues. With nearly 175 attorneys practicing throughout the region, our team of legal professionals guides clients in a broad spectrum of legal matters so they can focus on fulfilling their charitable mission.
