Charities are focusing more and more attention on revenue-generating activities, both as a means of carrying out their missions and as a means of generating revenue to support their missions. With the expansion of web-based strategies and global communications, charities, often working with commercial "partners," have been developing new and innovative income-generating strategies that must be evaluated and tested against established laws.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) expanded clean energy tax credits, making them available (and refundable) for tax-exempt and government entities and incorporating incentives intended to steer benefits toward low-income communities. Explore how the IRA’s credits and incentives can create opportunities for financing charitable activity and traps for the unwary.

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?
