Proactive Advice and Services to Help You Fulfill Your Mission

The charitable sector has become highly competitive. Donors, regulators, the media and other parties have set increasingly high standards for charities and their operations. We assist charities of all sizes with informal legal audits to identify potential legal and governance concerns for a charity and its board of directors.

We understand that legal issues are only one of many matters a charity has to deal with, and we work with charities to prioritize action items and deal with concerns in a way that provides the least disruption to the charity’s operations and its mission. In this way, a charity can proactively resolve issues so that donor, regulator and media attention will remain focused on the good work of the charity.
