Nonprofit and Charitable Organizations

Meardon, Sueppel & Downer attorneys provide representation to many nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, including churches, foundations, health and human service organizations, environmental organizations, professional organizations, and care centers. We represent clients in the formation of new nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations, including public charities and private foundations. We assist clients with the selection of the most appropriate entity for their purposes and we offer guidance on the development of mission statements, business plans, bylaws and policies and procedures. We also assist existing nonprofit and tax-exempt organizations with ongoing issues, including matters related to non-profit governance, compliance, and employment law.
