Not-For-Profit Entities and Charitable Giving Enhancing Your Impact

In the not-for-profit sector, both charitable organizations and individual philanthropists navigate various regulatory challenges, including resources and visibility. At Kilpatrick, our mission is to help enhance your philanthropic vision by offering forward-thinking legal guidance tailored to the not-for-profit world. We partner with a diverse group of clients, from grassroots initiatives to prominent national entities, and individuals, ensuring that your legal framework enhances your impact rather than constraining it.

For individuals passionate about philanthropy, we provide legal strategies that resonate with your personal and civic aspirations, from structured giving to social impact investments, ensuring your contributions create lasting change.


Kilpatrick provides legal counsel designed for not-for-profit entities and charitable giving. We prioritize legal structures that safeguard tax-exempt statuses and ensure compliance, allowing you to focus on your core mission. Our strategies for individuals are designed to reflect your philanthropic goals, considering everything from naming rights to the long-term stewardship of your gifts.
