As a benefit of membership, voting members have access to the Council on Foundations’ attorneys and legal staff, who provide detailed information and education on a wide variety of topics related to foundation operations and legal compliance. The attorneys and staff of the Legal Resources team have experience in nonprofit and tax law and understand the unique legal and compliance issues facing private, corporate, and community foundations. Individual access to the Legal Resources team is available by telephone or email, and there is no limit to the number of times a member may access support from the team.
Note: all publications, articles, email correspondence and telephone consultations provided by Council attorneys and legal staff are intended for informational purposes only and not as part of an attorney-client relationship. Council attorneys are not licensed in every state and cannot provide legal representation.
