Legal Issues for New Nonprofits
Your organization received its 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS – now what?
Legal Issues for New Nonprofits is an eight-part webinar series that provides general legal information for operating a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit corporation. These webinars explain many rules and best practices that will help you lead your organization and maintain its tax-exempt status, including:
- governance, fundraising, and record-keeping requirements;
- compliance with employment laws;
- protection of your organization’s trademarks and copyrights;
- financial oversight by the Board of Directors;
- risk management essentials to protect your organization and clients.
While geared towards new nonprofits, the webinars will also help smaller nonprofits with limited access to legal resources.
Each webinar is a standalone presentation, so you can view any or all of the presentations in any order. Each webinar also has a PowerPoint that you can download.
Legal Issues for New Nonprofits is a joint effort of the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Program, Pro Bono Partnership, and Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, members of the National Network of Business Law Pro Bono Providers.
