Event description

Description

As charities seek to attract and retain donors to support their programs, they operate within a legal framework that offers challenges and opportunities. Community-based and other nonprofits are under pressure to diversify their funding sources to include a range of private foundations, corporations, government and individual funders. Expanded ways of fundraising, including special events and online communications, have opened up innovative avenues to support fundraising efforts. This in person workshop will provide an overview of the federal and state laws that apply to nonprofits that are fundraising in New York, including documentation and disclosure rules imposed by the Internal Revenue Code, state charities registration and reporting, the use of volunteer and paid fundraisers, and steps to avoid deceptive solicitation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Better understand regulatory framework in order to better support the organization’s fundraising activities.
  • Learn how to follow laws and regulations related to documentation of gifts.
  • Learn to recognize and steps to address legal issues related to particular types of gifts.


This workshop will be presented by Elizabeth Guggenheimer, Deputy Executive Director/Director of Institutional Advancement at Lawyers Alliance for New York
