This event has already occurred.

For nonprofits, raising funds is a must. As nonprofit in-house counsel know well, development departments can be very creative in proposing new fundraising strategies, which can present unique legal risks. This program will discuss legal issues that often arise in development campaigns, including charitable solicitation registration issues, promotional considerations when partnering with for-profits, federal tax requirements for charitable contributions, and strategies for meeting legal requirements in raffles and other charitable promotions.‎

We will go beyond the basics to cover recent developments, such as new state filing requirements, considerations for evaluating evolving online fundraising vehicles, and new marketing regulations that could affect your organization’s international fundraising. Finally, this program will offer practical recommendations for in-house counsel to spot and address issues in innovative fundraising campaigns.‎

Topics will include:

  • Strategies for ensuring compliance in commercial co-venture campaigns‎
  • Regulatory update for state charitable solicitation registration‎
  • Key points to consider when participating in an online fundraising platform‎
  • Legal issues in running raffles and other charitable promotions

Join us for what promises to be an informative, interactive, and in-depth dive into the most current legal issues in nonprofit fundraising.
