In this Level 101 session, we’ll be discussing the basic legal considerations applicable to nonprofits. We’ll start with a discussion of the current environment for nonprofits, as well as the process for forming a nonprofit and applying for tax exemption under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). We’ll cover the fundamentals of nonprofit governance and the duties that directors of a nonprofit owe to the organization. We’ll also discuss some of the other rules applicable to Section 501(c)(3) exempt organizations, including those pertaining to earned income and the unrelated business income tax (UBIT), executive compensation, and lobbying and advocacy activities. Finally, we’ll briefly cover a few alternatives to forming a nonprofit that may be used to achieve an individual’s charitable goals.

This will be a great program for attorneys who occasionally represent nonprofits or who serve on nonprofit boards.
