Kaye Scholer hosted Counseling Small Nonprofits on March 14, 2016. The panel discussion, co-sponsored with the Legal Aid Society’s Civil Practice group, featured Pro Bono counsel Alison King and Tax & Private Clients associate Meredith Stead, as well as Susan Chase of Legal Aid.

The program covered the essentials of counseling small- to medium-sized nonprofit organizations, including:

  • good governance best practices
  • fiduciary duties of the board of directors
  • annual reporting to the IRS and the Charities Bureau; and
  • legally compliant fundraising.

Participants also learned how to use a nonprofit compliance checklist, a tool that helps nonprofits and their attorneys to keep track of the sometimes bewildering range of nonprofit organization compliance obligations.

Two CLE credits total: 1.5 hours of professional practice/practice management and .5 hour skills.
