Non-profit corporations are typically formed for the purpose of furthering one or more charitable causes. In most cases, non-profit corporations are governed by a Board of Directors comprised of well-intentioned individuals who are volunteering their time for the benefit of such causes. In order to ensure that a non-profit corporation is in compliance with applicable law and provides the customary protections for its Board members, the governance documents of the non-profit corporation, including its Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, should be drafted carefully.
Our firm regularly forms non-profit corporations and assists such organizations with the preparation and amendment of their governing documents.
