April Legal Clinic

Communities Rise offers FREE monthly legal clinics to provide legal assistance to Washington-based small businesses and nonprofits! Legal clinics are held virtually via Zoom video call. Qualifying clients are paired with an attorney for a free 1-hour limited engagement legal consultation to discuss business-transactional matters, such as questions around:

  • Incorporation and application for tax exemption status (general questions only)
  • Federal Tax-Exempt Status (general questions only)
  • Nonprofit Governance
  • Business Entity Formation
  • Maintenance and Compliance with State and Federal Law
  • Advice on Corporate Governance
  • Taxes (general questions only)
  • Employment
  • Real Estate
  • Intellectual Property 
  • Risk and Liability Assessment

Please keep in mind that questions which can be answered in a short amount of time are best suited for the clinic due to the 1 hour appointment time limit. As such, the clinic is not suited for document review of documents (leases, contracts, bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, etc) that are longer than 4 pages.

To learn more about our legal clinics and what legal matters we can and cannot assist with, please view our Clinic FAQ.

Our legal clinics are intended for small businesses and nonprofits who meet the eligibility requirements- click here for small business eligibility information. For nonprofit clinic appointments, priority is given to nonprofits with annual budgets under $500,000.

To request an appointment or for more information, please email legalclinic@communities-rise.orgPlease note: Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate same-day appointments. Due to the logistics required in setting up the clinic, we recommend requesting an appointment 7-10 days prior to the desired clinic date.

All clinics will be held virtually via Zoom until further notice.

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford. Since the beginning of my freshman year I have been involved with clubs such as Stanford’s Space Initiative (SSI) and the Society of Latinx Engineers (SOLE). In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.

Aero Methow Rescue Service

GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.

The grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

Scholarship Recipient

My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. He told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.
