Is your nonprofit in compliance with the laws and regulations that govern it? Are you even aware of all of the laws and regulations that cover corporate governance, taxes, fundraising and employees?
Presented in collaboration with Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
The implications of not being compliant range from fines to the loss of your 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Help your nonprofit stay out of legal trouble. This workshop will help you to learn some common pitfalls for nonprofits and how to avoid them.
