Private Foundation Creation and Counsel

We provided counsel to clients wishing to use private foundations. We created private foundations and other non-profit entities and obtained tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service.

We counseled private foundations regarding program-related investments and making properly-documented grants. We provided counsel to private foundations regarding governance best practices, identifying “disqualified persons,” and avoiding “self-dealing” and other prohibited transactions.

When the client wished to create new charitable entities, we helped them to unwind private foundations.
