Legal Counsel for Not-For-Profit Organizations

A Not-For-Profit charitable organization is a corporation that does not distribute profits to the owners. Revenue earned or donated is used to pursue the company’s mission, which may be for public safety, scientific, religious, or humanitarian purposes. Examples of Not-For-Profit organizations are religious houses of worship, food pantries, animal rescues, universities, hospitals, and cultural institutions. The Internal Revenue Service offers tax-exempt status for corporations that meet specific criteria. The organization is exempt from sales taxes, property taxes, and state corporate income taxes if an application is approved.


Committed to working with individuals and corporations, the Myers Law Group, P.A. has provided counsel for countless Not-For-Profit organizations. We have the depth of knowledge and experience necessary to provide strategies and services that will facilitate the mission and purpose of your organization. Our services create the proper foundation for your organization to flourish.


We are Dedicated to Serving the Legal Needs of the Not-For-Profit Sector


At the Myers Law Group, P.A., we work with the founders of an organization to draft, amend, and adopt the policies and procedures that comply with state and federal regulations. Our legal team files applications at the state and federal levels to achieve an organization’s tax-exempt status. We reapply for organizations that have allowed their tax-exempt status to lapse. To achieve and maintain this status, the Internal Revenue Service scrutinizes and audits the structure and programs of an organization to ensure its continued compliance. It is vital to have the legal support of an experienced business law attorney.


We offer a Comprehensive Array of Legal Services for Not-For-Profit Organizations. Examples include but are not limited to:


  • Labor and employment counsel
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Joint venture operating contracts
  • The purchase, lease, or sale of real estate
  • By-laws and governance
  • Permitting and licensing
  • Intellectual property matters
  • Contract negotiations
  • Disputes resolution and litigation
  • Drafting or amending articles of incorporation
  • Drafting or amending by-laws


 The Myers Law Group, P.A. Supports Day-to-Day Operations and Paves the Way for the Organization’s Growth


Our legal team stays current on the ever-changing obligations and challenges of Not-For-Profit organizations. To ensure compliance with state and federal regulations, we regularly counsel clients regarding policies and procedure manuals, and handbooks for best practices. When necessary, we provide legal representation for disputes through negotiations and litigation. Our attorneys are well-respected in the courtroom and have proven results in civil and criminal verdicts and settlements.


In addition to working directly with Not-For-Profit business clients and their Board of Directors, we offer services for those who wish to leave a legacy to a charitable organization.
