Non-Profits and Tax Exempt Organizations

As part of our commitment to public service, Rachier & Amollo Advocates serves tax-exempt organizations and foundations throughout the Region. We deliver comprehensive legal counsel in all aspects of non-profit law, governance and regulation with the goal of providing critical and practical strategies for sound non-profit governance and minimizing the liabilities faced by Boards of Directors in today’s tough regulatory environment. We also work closely with the officers and management to develop critical legal documents specifically tailored to each non-profit client.

Entities that operate as non-profits are confronted with legal issues unique to their organizational structures and mission statements. These entities need knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel to guide them through the hurdles imposed by federal and state regulations, maintain efficient operations and to meet potential challenges as they occur. Our services include but are not limited to:  

  • • Formation (preparing all organizational documents, e.g. articles of incorporation, bylaws, trusts)
  • • Establishing Tax-Exempt Status
  • • Advice on Annual Tax Information Return
  • • Advising on Operational Issues
