Kimberly Eney helps tax-exempt organizations navigate tax laws. She works on private foundation excise taxes, unrelated business income tax, lobbying and political activity restrictions, intermediate sanctions and other compensation-related issues, applications for tax exemption, Form 990 filing issues, and ongoing compliance. Tax-exempt organizations turn to Kim for corporate advice, including formation, compliance with state nonprofit corporation statutes, drafting of agreements, development of good board governance policies and practices, and handling of conflicts of interest.
Kim assists clients with IRS audits, advises on business transactions, and keeps clients up to date on relevant proposed legislation, regulations, and rulings. She works with a range of tax-exempt organizations. Clients include private and operating foundations, colleges and universities, museums and cultural organizations, and scientific and medical research groups. She also works with public broadcasting organizations, community and economic development organizations, and other special-purpose charitable organizations and associations.
Kim’s practice has evolved from a long-standing commitment to the nonprofit sector. Before attending law school, Kim worked at a boutique consulting firm, where she advised tax-exempt healthcare and education organizations on communications, public relations, and public policy issues.
While attending law school, she served as a fund manager for the Student Social Venture Fund, a high-engagement grant-making program at the New York University Stern School of Business that provides technical support and financial assistance to tax-exempt organizations in New York. Kim was a fellow at the National Center on Philanthropy and the Law.
