Rescue organization legal issues
From existing not-for-profit companies to start-up animal rescue organizations, I can help guide you through the maze of state and federal regulations, achieve §501(c)(3) status as well as maintain your corporate standing.
Establishing and running an effective not-for-profit corporation can seem overwhelming, each entity and its mission is different; call me today to discuss your particular needs.
Prior to forming a new not-for-profit rescue several key questions must be considered:
(1) Are the members of the corporation shielded from personal liability?
(2) Does the entity have proper insurance in case of an accident or lawsuit?
(3) Are you aware of all of the laws and regulations which impact a not for profit organization including filings with the New York State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau?
If you have answered no to any of these questions or are unsure of the answer you should contact an attorney today to discuss these issues.
