Nonprofit Boards and staff: Are you complying with fundraising rules?
Is your organization properly registered to conduct fundraising and appropriately reporting the donations it receives to the IRS?
Do your solicitations contain required disclosures?
Are the proper acknowledgements being provided to your donors?
Are you generating income from a business venture? Do you owe taxes on this income?
A seminar to address these and other legal fundraising issues will be offered on March 12, 5:30-7:30pm, at the New Haven Public Library at 133 Elm St. Presenters include Priya Morganstern, Director of the Hartford Program of the Pro Bono Partnership, Inc. and Thomas M. Fiorentino, Assistant Attorney General of Connecticut.
The Pro Bono Partnership (http://probonopartner.org) provides direct legal services to nonprofits, matches nonprofits with volunteer attorneys, and conducts educational seminars and trainings. Fiorentino is charged with oversight of the Connecticut Public Charities Unit, which is responsible for the administration of various laws, including the Solicitation of Charitable Funds Act, that govern the conduct of charitable organizations in Connecticut.
Boards and staff are encouraged to attend this important informational session to avoid inadvertent errors that could endanger the tax-exempt status of a nonprofit organization.
There is no charge and free parking is available. Registration is required at www.nonprofit.eventbrite.com or call 203-946-8835.
