Join us for something new! We’re bringing together two of the state’s most experienced nonprofit legal minds to address some critical nonprofit legal basics and answer some of your most pressing nonprofit-related legal questions. Eric Gorovitz and David Levitt, both principals at nationally recognized Adler & Colvin, will discuss such issues as compliance, privacy and data security, fundraising regulations, lobbying, and employment law as it applies to nonprofits.
You can also help guide our discussion by submitting your own questions for Eric and David. What legal quandaries are keeping you up at night? Is it about your board? Are you 501(c)4 curious? Let CalNonprofits know via the registration form, and we’ll do our best to respond to as many questions as possible. CEO Jan Masaoka will be on hand to help us sort through our sector’s most pressing concerns.
Ingrid Mittermaier will discuss what’s behind the trend of major asset donations to non-501(c)(3) charities; types of tax-exempt/philanthropic vehicles (501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), 501(c)(6), taxable nonprofit corporation, philanthropic LLC); major differences in governance, tax treatment, and regulatory oversight and restrictions; and planning opportunities in light of those differences.
Explore the latest in policy and regulation from the US Government in an effort to answer the question: What just happened? You’ll be the first to know about topics like donor-advised fund regulations, end-of-year legislation, and what is Congress likely to do next? What about those expiring incentives for charitable giving, will they be renewed? Meanwhile, the Supreme Court continues to unwind the regulatory powers of the executive branch.
