Public Charities

Kelly Hart’s Nonprofit Organizations attorneys provide comprehensive legal services to our public charity clients. We offer advice concerning matters relating to their initial organization, including the preparation of documents in connection with their formation and the application for tax exemption that is submitted to the IRS. We further provide counsel relating to the ongoing operation of public charities. Our clients include museums, performing arts organizations, other arts and cultural groups, religious institutions, conservation groups, hospitals, other healthcare providers, supporting organizations, schools and other educational organizations and other charitable entities. We have assisted our museum clients, whether public charities or private foundations, in the acquisition of many significant works of art.  As with our private foundation clients, many of our public charity clients retain Kelly Hart as general advisor and counsel.
