Nonprofit organizations enjoy significant benefits, which can include eligibility for public and private donations, and exemption from payment of certain taxes. Charities, service agencies, trusts, foundations, professional associations, trade unions, artistic entities and other mission-driven organizations can take advantage of these benefits.

We have worked with many Colorado nonprofits that include major recreation and travel providers, and educational and trade groups. Whether you are starting a nonprofit or seeking to grow or improve an existing organization, we can help. Our competencies include:
- Nonprofit structuring and entity formation, including 501(c)(3) organization. We can guide new nonprofit organizations through the process of obtaining IRS-approved status, which can be difficult to obtain.
