Exempt Organizations

The McCarthy Fingar Team

Whether it relates to its tax exempt status or advice as to the way they do business, not-for-profit organizations and charitable private foundations require attorneys and tax professionals with high-quality skills and experience. The lawyers in McCarthy Fingar's Exempt Organizations group are among the most best known and respected in our region. McCarthy Fingar attorneys represent and assist in the formation and administration of not-for-profit organizations and various charitable private foundations for individual and corporate clients. We also assist our tax-exempt organizations in their planned giving programs.
