A Better Partnership

Nonprofit Organizations


From small private foundations to large health systems, Warner attorneys represent all types of nonprofit organizations. Our nonprofit clients include churches and religious denominations, hospitals, museums, environ­mental groups, family and community foundations, schools and universities, social welfare organizations, social clubs and trade associations as well as nonprofit organizations formed to support the arts, research, religion, education, special events, civic affairs and economic development.

Although nonprofit organizations once were able to avoid many of the complex legal issues faced by commercial businesses, we recognize that they now are often held to a higher standard and subject to extensive scrutiny and government regulation. That's where we come in. We have the knowledge and experience to provide a broad range of legal services, including governance and management, to nonprofit orga­nizations. We can help nonprofits, including Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), with fundraising, socially responsible investing, securities and tax-exempt financing, litigation and other matters.
