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.
