Legal Considerations for Nonprofits

Jul 25, 2024
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Nonprofit tax-exempt organizations are continuously faced with legal issues. The scope of these legal matters varies widely from corporate governance to more day-to-day matters such as reviewing and assessing policies, procedures, and programs, reviewing contracts such as vendor contracts or donor agreements, and stewarding assets and managing funds. From corporate governance to day-to-day operations, it is important for organizations to have good policies and procedures in place and also be aware of common legal pitfalls. This webinar is a high-level review of legal matters that nonprofit tax-exempt organizations face including common issues, best practices, and current trends.

This virtual workshop will be especially helpful for newer organizations and people new to the nonprofit sector as staff or board.

Thank you to our annual sponsor Manley Burke for presenting this workshop!

The Inflation Reduction Act, signed into law in 2022, contains cost-saving incentives for building energy upgrades available to tax-exempt organizations (including nonprofits and faith-based organizations) and individuals, touching on tax credits, deductions, rebates, and grant/loan programs available now through 2032. With nearly $370 Billion in projected impact, the IRA is the most significant American investment in climate solutions in history.

Into the Woods: Leadership Challenge ® 3-day Experience

September 16, September 17, September 18

Leadership Challenge



Click Here to Register

Nonprofit leadership matters, and now is the perfect time to invest in the staff that will continue to lead your nonprofit through these uncertain times. Due to the generosity of our facilitator Steve Coats and Wiley Publishing, we can offer this program to your emerging leaders at a price far below market rate.

Three things we know about The Leadership Challenge® that differentiates it:

1. Attendees leave this session better able to lead – immediately.

2. Research by Kouzes and Posner shows that leaders have a direct influence on the engagement levels of talent. The best leaders create the best workplaces.

3. People who more frequently use the leadership practices presented in the workshop produce higher results than those who use them less frequently.

Investing in growth opportunities for emerging nonprofit leaders is critical. Often at nonprofits there may not be an opportunity for “climbing the ladder” in new positions, but there is always an opportunity to develop within a role. This can come in the form of learning best practices like the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®.

The Leadership Challenge® includes a 360-degree assessment, the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), which is a simple, 30-question inventory. The feedback it provides is very understandable and usable. It provides people with a solid roadmap for change.

This is a great program for a few team members to participate in so they can bring the learning back to your organization as a team. Studies show that leadership development helps with employee experience and retention.

We encourage you to respond promptly as the program is limited to 24 participants and a max of 3 people per organization.
