In 2013, we noticed a problem in the nonprofit community: there were a myriad of legal requirements and complexities, but very few lawyers knew the intricacies of nonprofit law. And the lawyers who did offer services often charged much more than most nonprofits could afford. We aimed to change that through Charitable Allies, a nonprofit legal aid law firm.
Since 2013, Charitable Allies has focused exclusively on serving and supporting nonprofits and their stakeholders. We provide legal support and education at “low-bono” (or below half fair market value) rates for nonprofit clients around the country. Whether a new animal shelter is looking to get their 501c3 status or a youth sports club is looking to set safety standards, we are here to help. We know that when nonprofits thrive, they can change the world for the better. Here are a few of the services we offer:
- Help with starting a nonprofit legally
- Legal representation in cases
- Nonprofit mergers
- Nonprofit dissolutions and reorganizations
- 501(c)(3) reinstatement for organizations who have lost their IRS status
- Fiscal Sponsorship
- Questions about various nonprofit issues such as UBIT or board governance
- Grant agreements and restrictions
As a nonprofit organization ourselves, we understand the unique challenges that nonprofit organizations face. Our experienced and compassionate team of attorneys is here to act as your nonprofit advocate. We have clients in more than 30 states.
