Spencer Fane provides legal services to a wide range of Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Organizations across the country including hospitals, educational institutions, social service organizations, religious organizations, cultural institutions, and private and public foundations.
We establish and maintain the tax-exempt status of public charities and private foundations, advise on the deductibility of charitable contributions, create charitable giving plans, advise on board governance issues, develop policies and corporate compliance programs, and provide advice on employment laws as they apply to nonprofit organizations.
We are active in the nonprofit community as members of boards. We regularly speak on topics specific to nonprofit organizations and provide training on a variety of issues. Our attorneys have experience in many disciplines and as a result also serve in other practice groups within the Firm. This cross-discipline approach provides our clients with a critical broad base perspective.
