Managing Private Philanthropy: 501(C)(4)s, Donor Advised Funds, and LLCs: Alternatives to Private Foundations? (Feb 2019)

Some social entrepreneurs find that the operational restrictions that come with private foundations inhibit their ability to pursue social change through a broad array of tactics and strategies. For those philanthropists, other vehicles (DAF’s, Social Welfare Organizations, and LLC’s) are complimenting their foundation work or replacing it altogether. Define these structures, examine how they differ from private foundations, and learn the common ways they are being used to achieve philanthropic goals.

But several questions arise: how to implement entrepreneurial activities, how to ensure charitable purposes, how to protect against impermissible private benefit, how to approach involvement by multiple parties, what to do about work product and intellectual property, among others. Learn how these engagements are possible, what to be aware of when doing them, and why this tool should be in even more toolboxes!

Advancing the Common Good in the Texas Legislative Process (Feb 2019)

Texas nonprofits of all sizes and varieties have become more active in the public forum and in the legislative process to advance their missions and the interests of their constituents. How effective are these activities and how does the “nonprofit sector” rank among the other special interest groups that occupy the policy and political landscape? Do charities, state associations and nonprofit activist groups have a special rolea special voicein the legislative process different from other interest groups? Do “dark money” organizations reflect negatively on other nonprofit organizations? Are nonprofit entities that perform government functions prepared for the related accountability and transparency in their operations? Discuss these questions in general terms with respect to the realities of the legislative process, with specific references to legislation expected in the 2019 session as well as comments on controversies and legislative challenges to the nonprofit sector in past sessions.
