Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Organizations

We guide tax-exempt organizations through their formation, application for tax exemption, operation, and occasionally termination.  We assist our clients in managing unrelated business income taxes, the use of joint ventures and subsidiary entities, and fundraising, including deferred or planned gifts.

Our clients include local, national, and international tax-exempt organizations who seek our assistance in navigating both federal law and the intricacies of operating a tax-exempt organization in Hawai`i.

We not only understand the needs and goals of nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations, we live it through the Cades Foundation–the charitable arm of Cades Schutte LLP–the largest private funder of the arts in Hawai`i.  The Cades Foundation supports organizations that promote the arts, education, the well-being of children, health and human services, and improvement of the legal profession.
