A Preeminent Attorney for Charitable Organizations
Mr. Haney has practiced charity, nonprofit, and philanthropic law more than 40 years. His expertise is in the area of federal nonprofit law and the vetting and application of the Internal Revenue Code, including all new tax legislation affecting any issues involving a tax exempt/charitable practice. Haney represents individuals and organizations nationwide, including private foundations, publicly supported organizations, social welfare organizations, churches, ministries, philanthropists, non-governmental organizations, social enterprises, and for-profit businesses engaged in philanthropy or related to charities or their principals. He assists clients to optimize their ability to achieve mission by advising on matters relating to organizational structure, governance, regulatory compliance and nonprofit commercial activities.
Haney is a lifelong Tulsan, and he stays active in the charitable community as a way of giving back from the experience of his practice, and further developing it too. He has taught “Entrepreneurial Philanthropy” as an adjunct professor at the University of Tulsa business school. Haney served as the 2015 and 2016 Event Chair of the American Diabetes Association Concours for the Cure fundraiser. He is a member of the Board of Advocates for Street School (alternative school, Tulsa), and a director on the boards of Barthelmes Foundation (music conservatory, Tulsa), Chamber Music Tulsa, Choregus Productions (modern dance, Tulsa), and Aquaivia, a Washington DC based clean water charity. Haney is also a charter member of the Edison Foundation, supporting the needs of students and teachers at Edison High School, a preparatory school in Tulsa.
Because Haney recognizes that legal precision is critical to a nonprofit’s life-long success, he has made it his life’s mission to help charities, nonprofit organizations, and private donors minimize legal risk so that they can focus on what’s truly important—serving their communities.
