Non-Profit organizations are corporate entities given different tax treatment than their for-profit counterparts, to suit their special purposes. As such, they can be subject to a litany of issues; if a corporate attorney is not careful in making their recommendations, they can cause their clients significant problems down the line. If an attorney takes the time to learn the field, however, there are tools and tricks to significantly benefit their clients.

This discussion will enable you to spot problems as they arise, help your clients avoid common pitfalls many non-profits fall into without even realizing, and provide you with some new tools to benefit your non-profit clients.
