Event description

Description

CO-HOSTED BY MINNESOTA COUNCIL OF NONPROFITS AND ROCHESTER AREA FOUNDATION

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: The recently passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will have a profound impact on our philanthropic landscape: a reduced ability to itemize deductions for charitable gifts, decreased federal subsidies for charitable giving, and fewer incentives for tax-motivated estate bequests. Nonprofits will need new strategies to focus their requests for support. Join Jon Pratt, Executive Director for MN Council of Nonprofits, for a presentation on the new law, implications for Minnesota nonprofits, and a look forward on the philanthropic landscape. Then explore the financial implications of fundraising events to better plan for proper accounting of funds. Are you correctly tracking and valuing donations, establishing controls to protect the money you raise, accounting as required for capital campaigns, and meeting all reporting requirements? Come learn how to stay organized financially and how that can help to make your fundraisers more successful and build trust with your stakeholders.

PRESENTERS: Sandra Jensen, a partner with Hawkins Ash CPAs, provides audit services for nonprofits and serves as chair of the firm’s nonprofit service group. She is a member of the WICPA Nonprofit & Healthcare Financial Conference Task Force. As a manager in the firm’s Rochester office, Joe Nurmi prepares audits, reviews and compiles financials, and prepares non-profit federal and state returns. Jon Pratt worked for the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group as an attorney and lobbyist, and as director for the Philanthropy Project. He currently leads MCN, an association that sponsors research, training, lobbying and negotiated discounts to strengthen Minnesota’s nonprofit sector.
