Charitable Gift Planning & Tax-Exempt Organizations

We help you make better tomorrows.

Young Moore represents both individual donors and charitable organizations in their efforts to make better tomorrows. Individual donors seek our guidance for developing gifting strategies; forming charitable trusts, supporting organizations and private foundations; and expertise related to the mechanics of those entities.

Our proficiency also includes assisting newly formed charities, private foundations and non-profit corporations with the preparation and filing of applications for tax exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service. Additionally, we counsel and assist charitable organizations with the preparation of bylaws, conflict of interest policies, charitable gift acceptance policies and other contracts and the development of planned giving programs.

For day-to-day operations, our attorneys work with charitable organizations to address issues related to employment and contract matters, preparation and interpretation of charitable trusts, advice on charitable gift annuities, and preparation of legal opinions for grant applications. Governance and compliance guidance, as well as review and revision of bylaws, are additional services we routinely provide in the charitable arena.

Electronic mail or other oral or written communication to Young Moore and Henderson P.A. in connection with a matter for which we do not already represent you may not be treated as privileged or confidential. Communications are not privileged until the client and lawyer have agreed on legal representation. Please do not send confidential information to us via e-mail or in any other manner without first communicating directly with us about the attorney-client relationship. The transmission of an e-mail request for information does not create an attorney-client relationship. Your initial email should only contain a list of the parties interested in the matter so that we can make sure we have no conflicts before you convey any information about your case.
