Foundations and Charitable Giving


Members of the firm have extensive experience in working with foundations, both as members and as counsel.


The firm advises foundations on matters relating to the establishment of charitable gift programs, management and reporting of gifts, including restricted gifts, and the compliance with federal and state reporting requirements.


We are active with the New York State Bar Association’s Trust and Estates Executive Committee; a member chairs the Trust and Estates Continuing Legal Education Committee. As such, the firm has developed and held numerous conferences on planned giving and working with not-for-profit organizations.


Two members of the firm have chaired the Northeast Health (formerly Samaritan Hospital) Foundation, and our attorneys have been or are directors of the Community Foundation for the Capital Region, the American Conservation Association, Herold Charitable Trust, Prospect Park Foundation, Troy Library Foundation and the Troy Educational Pride Foundation.
