Helping Nonprofit Organizations Thrive In North Carolina Communities
Nonprofit organizations provide a means for our communities to achieve a better quality of life — typically in ways, the government and for-profit institutions cannot. While nonprofit corporations have unique legal needs, they still must consider the legal implications of their decisions and manage operations according to complex regulations.
If you are looking to form a nonprofit in Chapel Hill or the surrounding areas of North Carolina, work with an experienced lawyer who can help you achieve your goals. We can help you consider issues unique to nonprofit legal status, such as:
- Bylaw revisions and governance
- IRS 501c-3 designations
- Board of director and officer duties
- Employee hiring and firing practices
- Employee compensation and classification (i.e., full-time, part-time, unpaid workers, etc.)
- Fundraising and the allocation of charitable giving funds
We work with organizations in a wide range of industries and sectors of the economy, from charitable foundations and educational institutions to programs that support the fine arts or political action.
