Leading a nonprofit is no easy task. Aside from heightened competition for volunteers and donors, you need to navigate an increasingly complex world of legal and regulatory constraints. Charity regulators at the state level are increasingly scrutinizing fundraising and overhead costs and prosecuting charities and their fundraisers for solicitation fraud. So what strategies and best practices should your nonprofit follow to avoid potential pitfalls and legal scrutiny?
Learn from industry expert Frank Klimko how to navigate the new tax laws, solve your top legal challenges, and remain sustainable. This session will cut through the dense legal chatter and provide straightforward answers in plain English. Understand the new tax laws, get “inside information” on how to solve your nonprofit’s legal problems, and find out how the IRS has made it easier for tax-exempt organizations to restructure.
This webinar will get you on the right track, and provide expert insights on critical issues – such as on conflicts of interest: whether board members can be paid for professional services rendered to the nonprofits they serve, whether a nonprofit executive can hire relatives to fill positions under their direct management, and so on.
Also catch up on the new accounting standards, learn how your nonprofit can tell a better financial story – and find out how you can make the most out of a booming opportunity. According to Giving USA 2018:
“Americans achieved a philanthropic landmark in 2017: for the first time total charitable giving surpassed $400 billion in a single year. A booming stock market and a generally strong economy combined to increase Americans’ financial resources and their confidence in sharing those additional resources through their philanthropy. Giving from individuals, bequests, foundations and corporations to U.S. charities surged to an estimated $410.02 billion, an increase of 5.2 percent over the previous year.”
