For more than 25 years, the skilled tax attorneys at Copilevitz & Canter, LLC have provided sound legal advice and counsel to the philanthropic sector. We work with over 250 charitable organizations nationwide and put this extensive experience to use in every case. In addition to helping these organizations form under 501(c)(3) and other charitable designations, we help them advance their missions through various fundraising mechanisms.

Innovative lawyers assist in structuring gifts for nonprofit organizations

Our tax lawyers can also assist nonprofits with structuring gifts, which can be critical components to a strategic fundraising plan. We set up charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities — options that provide the charitable organization with long-term gifts that can benefit them for years to come. Our attorneys also help with:

  • Developing gift-acceptance policies
  • Structuring transactions to avoid direct and indirect self-dealing
  • Developing administrative policies and procedures
  • Drafting contracts for recipients of funds to ensure tax-exempt organizations remain compliant

Our attorneys are committed to helping you take advantage of all options for improving the sustainability of your organization.
