Nonprofit & Charitable Organizations

Nonprofit organizations play an irreplaceable role in the social and economic well-being of our communities. Our attorneys are proud to serve as counsel to Arkansas 501(c)(3) organizations and other types of charities in all phases of their operation, whether it is the formation of a nonprofit corporation, obtaining tax-exempt status from the IRS, or finding solutions to the various compliance and legal matters that charitable organizations face on a daily basis. To ensure legal compliance, charities are typically subject to complex and ever-changing laws, regulations, funding restrictions, and reporting requirements imposed by the IRS. Charitable organizations generally must also comply with laws applicable to all other for-profit businesses, and therefore our corporate law practice enables us to assist our nonprofit clients with legal matters that arise in their day-to-day operations.

Rufus Wolff and Vince Ward lead our team of tax counsel that regularly assist Arkansas 501(c)(3) organizations and other types of charitable entities. If we can be of service, call us today at 501-954-8000, or submit an inquiry via our contact form available here.
