Nonprofit board members play a more important role than ever. Pressures are great, resources are limited and structures are becoming increasingly complex. We partner with nonprofit organizations to understand their individual goals, operations and culture to develop strategies to meet the individual needs of the organization within the parameters of the law.
We review corporate documents, consult on fiduciary responsibilities of directors and officers and counsel on organization and reorganization of nonprofit entities.
We analyze in detail and advise clients on liability insurance for directors and officers and have worked with several state attorneys general in delicate matters of public trust and fund management.
Not only do we understand the growing pressures for driving more revenues from existing resources, but we work with nonprofit organizations to incorporate for-profit business concepts into the nonprofit sphere and with for-profit companies to incorporate charitable aims into their business operations.
We use our essential experience and knowledge to partner with grantmaking institutions that invest their capital for social change.
