Presented by: Don Kramer, Editor and Publisher, Nonprofit Issues

Charities raising funds through special events or other activities that involve sponsorships, auctions, lotteries, or thank-you gifts must deal with a variety of technical legal requirements in advertising, calculating, and acknowledging the money. This webinar will review those rules so that charities can comply with the interlocking requirements. We will cover:

  • charitable solicitation registration
  • hidden issues in fundraising events
  • waivers, releases and indemnification
  • liquor liability
  • substantiation and "quid pro quo" acknowledgments
  • charity auctions and their special rules for valuing contributions
  • sponsorship rules distinguishing contributions from advertising
  • lotteries and sweepstakes
  • Form 990 reporting for special events

For a comprehensive list of special concerns for your next fundraising effort, join us for an in-depth look at the rules that affect your work.  Some of them may surprise you.
