Non-Profit & Tax-Exempt Organizations

We provide practical, experienced and innovative legal advice on every facet of nonprofit organization, from formation and governance, to operations and financing, to legal and regulatory compliance.

Our team includes attorneys who have worked with national and international charities, so we understand their particular needs.

We understand the unique challenges faced by nonprofits, because we have spent decades solving those challenges with our renowned reputation for expertise, responsiveness, and efficiency. Foley Hoag’s nonprofit team includes attorneys who have served as outside general counsel to national and international charities and family foundations, overseen a state attorney general’s public charities division, and authored a leading treatise on nonprofit property tax exemptions. With backgrounds ranging from corporate social responsibility and intellectual property to government relations and labor and employment, our attorneys’ legal guidance and strategic advice is drawn from their substantive experience. 

Foley Hoag’s clients include every form of nonprofit organization — from public charities, private foundations, and issue advocacy groups to trade associations, business leagues, and fraternal organizations. We also advise clients on cutting-edge social ventures and innovative corporate structures and financing techniques, as well as guiding governmental instrumentalities operating in a variety of sectors (including education, healthcare, cleantech and greentech, microfinance and philanthropy).  As your trusted legal advisor, let Foley Hoag help your nonprofit organization — whether new or established, large or small — advance its mission.
