In addition to helping our clients create new entities, we provide legal support through the other major milestones in a nonprofit's lifecycle, such as mergers and dissolutions. We also advise nonprofits on legal issues in taking over (or being taken over by) another entity, acquiring the assets of another entity, or selling assets to another entity, where the other entity may be a for-profit business or another exempt organization.

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.
Withholding can be a trap for unwary U.S. funders of foreign charitable activities. Even funders who are cognizant of the basic requirements of Section 1441 may struggle to understand when those rules apply to their support of foreign activities, which exceptions may be available in their specific circumstances, and what reporting obligations may attach. This panel will review the current state of federal withholding rules relevant to U.S. philanthropy and explore techniques and common practices that U.S. funders use to manage these obligations.
