Charitable and Not For Profit Organizations

Over the years, Menear Worrad & Associates has been privileged to assist in the incorporation and organization of many charitable corporations and associations. These non-share capital entities are set up for educational, religious or community or individual health or welfare betterment and we are proud of our role in assisting the formation and maintenance of these non-governmental organizations that contribute so much to the quality of life in our community and beyond. We welcome requests to advise upon the legal structure and ongoing legal issues of these institutions.

Related to our experience with charitable organizations is the extensive work that we have done with organizations for other “not-for-profit” purposes. Social, sporting, special interest and activity groups, hobbyists and fraternal organizations have been assisted by us in their formation, the structure of their “constitutions”, and the determination of their municipal tax status and other tax considerations. If your group is considering this, we will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each option.
