Nonprofit Organizations


Spencer Fane attorneys assist in creation and ongoing administration of nonprofit organizations of all sizes and types, helping to establish and maintain a lasting legacy for business owners or individuals who desire to make an impact with their assets. With that goal in mind, we also work with the organizations to maintain compliance with the various rules and regulations governing nonprofits.

Our broad experience as trusted advisors in both estate planning and nonprofit organizations helps clients meet the numerous requirements for creating an enduring nonprofit organization. This relationship often begins with the conceptual process, and continues on an ongoing basis to include formation, administration, regulation, and federal and state tax compliance.

We listen to clients to understand their goals for their assets and present options that fit their objectives. This includes the identification of potential issues and remediation of any legal matters involving the organization.

Although creation and continued compliance of a nonprofit organization can be a complicated process, we help clients understand all aspects while keeping the focus on their charitable missions and purposes.
