Meet Dov Goldberg, J.D.

#1 Highest Rated Charity Lawyer for Charities and Not-for-Profit Corporations

Hi, I’m Dov Goldberg. As a Lawyer working exclusively with Charities and Not-for-Profits, I help founders and directors register their charity and/or not-for-profit without dealing with complicated legal forms, by taking care of all the paperwork so that you can successfully register your charity/NPO, have more freedom, peace of mind, and spend more time doing what you love. 

In 2015, after working for several years in a boutique firm focused on corporate, business, and charity law, I took the leap to start a Law Firm dedicated exclusively to Charities and Not-for-Profit Corporations, so that I could help Charity Founders, Directors and Not-for-Profit Entrepreneurs register and operate their organizations on a solid and stable legal footing and so that I could work in a legal field where I am inspired daily by our amazing clients (…one of the best decisions I’ve ever made).

Since then, I’ve assisted 885+ Charity Founders, Directors, Officers, and NPO Entrepreneurs successfully register and govern their Canadian Charity/NPO and I’m the only charity lawyer with more than 78+  5.0 Star Google Reviews from clients who love my professional, quick and streamlined charity services.

I now manage and operate a passionate team of 5 at B.I.G. Charity Law Group who help my clients start, launch, and operate their Charity and/or Not-for-Profit corporation.

Our most common clients are:


  • Charity Founders looking to obtain a Charity Number so that they can issue tax-deductible receipts, which will allow them to massively increase their fundraising; and
  • Highly-committed Not-for-Profit Entrepreneurs looking to start and grow their NFP; and
  • Directors of Charities and NFPs dealing with complex governance and board issues.

Clients typically come to us when they’re looking to register a charity or NPO in Canada but don’t know how to, are concerned of having their application refused by the CRA – (the CRA rejects between 58% and 71% of all charity applications it receives every year) – and don’t want to deal with complicated legal forms.

Do any of those issues sound familiar to you?


Join over 885+ Charity Founders, Directors, and NPO entrepreneurs who have trusted me with registering their charity and NFP Corporation.

An Exciting and Overwhelming Time

You have a vision. It’s your chance to make the world a better place.  You are passionate and excited… and perhaps intimidated! So many forms – ugh! How does the charity registration process work? What are the steps involved? What if someone wrests control of the Registered Charity from you after you put in so much time, effort, and work?

Coming up with the idea and mission statement is just the beginning. The CRA rejects between 58 – 71% of all charity applications. And Charities are governed by numerous legislative acts and CRA policies. Getting the Charity structure, purposes, activities andapplication right is essential.


Count on Our Guidance

We demystify the process and handle everything from A to Z, making registration of your Charity our priority. And we structure your charity so that you, the founder, are always in control. We’ll guide you every step of the way, from registration to governance to compliance.

Register a Charity:​

Risk Management:​

Running a charity is like any other business – full of paperwork! You’re doing this because you love the Charity Work, not the paperwork. Protect your organization. Employment Contracts, Buy & Sell Real Estate, Policies and Procedures.
