Understanding formation and governance


– Creating a strong, sustainable non-profit

You want to fill a need in your community, but dealing with all the legal requirements seems overwhelming.   Organizing a bike drive for Christmas or feeding vulnerable families is a project you can tackle, but dealing with the IRS?  No thanks.   Here at the Law Office of Emily Cook, we are experienced at helping you lay a foundation that maximizes your mission and contemplates growth.  It is our passion to help you help others.  We can help you with required state and federal filings, obtaining tax-exempt status, establishing bylaws and forming a board.
