Corporate Housekeeping for nonprofits

March 13 | 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. 

The nonprofit sector is subject to extensive regulation by the Office of the Attorney General, the Department of State, and the IRS. Further, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 contains extensive changes to the tax code that impacts the tax treatment of nonprofits, their employees, and their donors. Join New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, attorneys from Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP, and Foundation Center for a session to help you navigate local, state, and federal rules. Our expert attorneys will provide valuable insight on:

  • how to assess your organization’s status;
  • an overview of board responsibilities and best practices;
  • tips for staying on track with filing requirements; and
  • the impact of recent law and regulatory changes.

Please note that this class is intended for nonprofits that are already set up and established. More information is available here
