Lawyers Alliance helps nonprofits provide critical social services and emergency funds to people affected by
terrorism, natural disasters, and other tragedies.
We launched our Disaster Relief Initiative in the aftermath
of September 11, 2001, to assist nonprofits affected by the
disaster and those that were responding to it. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Lawyers Alliance represented and provided legal information to New York nonprofits
assisting disaster victims. We helped nonprofits with
disaster relief legal matters related to fundraising and grant-making,
expansion and downsizing, real estate contingencies, and compliance with tax-exempt organizations
law. We hope Lawyers Alliance's experience offers helpful insights for those on the ground responding to 2017 hurricanes and earthquakes.
