Scranton Nonprofit Organizations Lawyers

The attorneys at Kreder Brooks Hailstone LLP represent a large and diverse group of Pennsylvania non-profit corporations and tax-exempt organizations, including associations, charities, social welfare agencies, religious organizations, private foundations, community foundations, hospitals and educational institutions. Our firm also represents individuals in their roles as officers and directors of, and contributors to, these entities.

  • organizing structure and governance
  • developing membership requirements
  • advising charities on unrelated business income tax issues, on matters relating to private enjoyment and private benefit, and on the administration of endowment funds and restricted gifts
  • advising charities about the tax and non-tax aspects of charitable contributions
  • advising charities about permissible fundraising activities
  • assisting charities in the structuring and administration of deferred giving programs
  • advising private foundations on minimum payout requirements, taxable expenditures and self-dealing rules
  • obtaining court approval of deviations from terms of charitable trusts
  • handling tax-exempt real estate transactions
