Running a non-profit organization such as a charity or church comes with its own set of challenges despite not operating as a traditional business. Like for-profit organizations, non-profits must register with the government, pay fees, create articles of incorporation, hold meetings, and undergo other steps to be legally recognized. Our legal team at Bostic Law Group, P.A. is committed to helping organizations that make the Charleston community better by offering counsel and other legal services to local non-profits.
Our church and non-profit attorneys already represent dozens of local churches and other non-profit organizations in a wide variety of matters including formation, defense of sexual misconduct claims, employment claims, and other general counsel matters.
We can help with many other legal matters facing churches and non-profits such as:
- Policy development
- Business formation
- Tax exempt status
PROTECT YOUR ORGANIZATION BEFORE IT’S NECESSARY
Church litigation is on the rise—a non-profit organization can be held liable not only for the culpable acts of its employees, but also for its volunteers. Therefore, it is important that churches and other non-profit organizations take steps to safeguard their congregations and avoid legal liability.
Potentially damaging situations can be avoided completely by adopting and following policies that discourage inappropriate conduct. The best time to implement these policies is before there has been any accusation of wrongdoing. This will not only protect children and other vulnerable classes, but it will also protect your leadership from false accusations.
We can help you implement such policies through counsel and other assistance if necessary. Our firm is always willing to go the extra mile for our clients, no matter what.
