Law, Best Practice and Pitfalls in Fundraising and Special Events
Are you really following the rules in fundraising?
As public expectations of transparency and accountability and regulator enforcement efforts increase, all charities must adhere to the highest levels of legal compliance and ethical accountability. Lapses in compliance can result not only in fines and penalties – but also, damage to a charity’s reputation and mission and donor trust.
Laura Solomon, Esq., and her associates at Laura Solomon, Esq. and Associates, provide legal advice to hundreds of charities and other exempt organizations, from start-up through all phases of their day to day operations. They provide the necessary tools (like Gift Acceptance Policies, Pledge and Gift Agreements) and advice to support their clients’ fundraising efforts, navigate through solicitation registration requirements, and negotiate and document complicated gifts.
Join her for a jam-packed 60-minute expert discussion of the black, white and grey of legal issues in fundraising. Laura will review federal and state requirements, best practices, and recommendations to help your charity stay in compliance.
This interactive session will provide you with the opportunity to raise specific questions and discuss them with peers.
