There are ten questions every nonprofit executive or board member should ask in order to identify unknown legal risks to the organization.

But once you've asked those questions, how do you address those risks in order to better protect the nonprofit?

In twelve years of advising nonprofits as Executive Director of Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, Rachel Epps Spears has received many calls from panicked nonprofit executives who just received a scary letter from the IRS, the Department of Labor, a plaintiff’s attorney, or a disgruntled employee. Rachel knows how nonprofits get into trouble, and she will use that knowledge to help your organization stay out of trouble.

Presented by: Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
