Pro Bono Partnership - What Are the Legal Issues Your Nonprofit Needs to Know?
03 Apr 2013
DLA Piper LLP One Atlantic Center, 1201 West Peachtree Street, Suite 2800 Atlanta, GA 30309
Gala dinners, walk-a-thons, local and national service days, concerts, conferences and other special events can raise funds and increase awareness and excitement for your organization's work. They are also a helpful strategy to recognize existing donors and reach additional supporters. Hosting a successful special event - one that meets your participation and financial goals - requires significant time, energy and planning, as well as a careful consideration of relevant legal issues.
This webinar will review the legal issues that your organization may face in connection with its next special event. Your organization will need to know the state requirements that apply to organizations that solicit donations in connection with the event or hold gaming activities such as raffles and casino nights. It should understand the IRS rules for when participants may claim a tax deduction for cash or in-kind gifts made in connection with the event, and when and how you can recognize event sponsors without running afoul of IRS rules. It will discuss the compensation, contract and other legal questions your organization may encounter when dealing with employees, contractors or special event volunteers.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided by DLA Piper, and parking will be validated.
