Providing Support

Legal Counsel

With Community Initiatives, you have a lawyer on-call, ready with answers. We partner with six different law firms, giving project access to a deep bench of legal experts on a wide range of nonprofit legal matters. Community Initiatives offers access to legal experts in the following areas:
  • Trademark
  • Intellectual property
  • Discrimination claims
  • Real estate
  • Employment & Discrimination
  • H-1 B visa extensions
  • Unrelated business income tax
  • Partnership agreements
Occasionally, a project will require highly specialized or intensive legal support. In those cases, Community Initiatives will pair projects with our vetted legal expert at a discounted rate.
