We act for a range of private charities and not-for-profit organizations, including hospitals and their related foundations and cultural organizations. Our full service capabilities ensure that all of your objectives and needs will be addressed in a responsive and effective manner. We provide advice at the onset, relating to the incorporation, organization and charitable registration of the not-for-profit or charity; and advice once operational, including advice relating to trademark, employment, governance issues, director and officer liability, and risk management.
We assist clients in meeting their philanthropic goals in a tax-efficient manner including establishing private family foundations or donor-advised funds and structuring other major gifts, both inter vivos and testamentary. We also assist clients interested in the establishment and ongoing maintenance of public charitable organizations.
