You know, nonprofit organizations in some respects are businesses and have many of the same legal issues that any other business would have. They employ people. They enter into contracts. They have leases; those kinds of things, but in addition that, they have this unique regulatory overlay of being a nonprofit corporation. There’s limitations on things that they can and can’t do that come from their tax-exempt status and their nonprofit status, and there are also kind of unique cultural issues in being a mission driven organization where the mission is the most important thing and financial sustainability or success are crucial, but not always primary, and so bringing those, that expertise together is what allows us to work with our clients.
