WE HELP NONPROFITS
Jenn Urban is the nonprofit superhero you want looking out for you. Having an advocate who really understands the issues can be a lifesaver. Jenn’s years of experience dealing with government agents, structuring nonprofits, and guiding management decisions means time and money saved for you.
We get it. In a world driven by profitability and bottom lines, the community’s needs are often ignored and underrepresented. The IRS defines a nonprofit as a “tax-exempt organization that serves the public good.” But, most nonprofits don’t have expertise in laws and legal speak; they have passion and experience in doing the right thing. Legal for Good works on your behalf, liaising with government agencies and entities, to ensure legal and financial compliance; and allowing your organization to focus on the public good.
We offer assistance in the following areas:
To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity, and wisdom across generations. There are over 40,000 Little Free Library book exchanges around the world, bringing curbside literacy home and sharing 16 million books annually.
