Nonprofit Heart and soul

Nonprofit organizations face similar challenges that businesses encounter, such as labor issues, cost concerns and litigation exposure. Our lawyers help nonprofits keep to their mission as tax-exempt entities and guide them through regulatory and operational challenges, as they fulfill their unique missions.  

Barnes & Thornburg assists more than 500 trade associations, professional associations, foundations, fraternities and sororities, museums, symphony orchestras, clubs, universities, health care organizations, credit unions, and other nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations in recognizing their particular corporate purposes while allowing them to operate effectively and efficiently.

Our areas of focus for our nonprofit clients include accreditation, antitrust, intellectual property, corporate transactions, labor and employment, governance, real estate, regulatory practice, tax, technology licensing and litigation.

We represent association, foundation, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and other nonprofit organization clients by obtaining and maintaining tax exempt status on the federal, state and local level. As nonprofits seek support, we partner with them in virtually all aspects of fundraising, including charitable solicitation standards, planned giving and charitable gaming compliance.
