Exploring the Contours of Charitability: Economic Development, Community Revitalization, Poverty Alleviation (Apr 2024)

As philanthropy seeks to help solve complex interrelated global problems such as climate change, hunger, income inequality, economic development, and poverty while often collaborating with governments, development financial organizations, for profit entities and non-governmental organizations, how should innovative programs and novel interventions be grounded in traditional bases of charitability? This two-part panel examines means of assessing and articulating charitability in the context of increasingly sophisticated philanthropic strategies.

Federal Election Law and Ethics Rules: What Charities Need to Know (Apr 2024)

Most charities know their 501(c)(3) tax status permits them to educate voters on a nonpartisan basis, and engage in limited legislative lobbying, while prohibiting intervention in candidate campaigns for public office entirely. But several activities permitted by federal tax law for charities are nonetheless regulated by federal election law, adding another layer of legal compliance. Charities also need to follow government ethics rules when working with elected and other federal public officials. Gain insight on these intersecting legal frameworks.

Governance: Managing an Internal Investigation (Apr 2024)

Explore the anatomy of an internal investigation from a governance perspective— from the allegations, through the first moves and the next steps, to the investigation’s findings and aftermath. An internal investigation can be a complex, fast moving and highly fraught legal experience not for the faint of heart and understanding the role of the board is imperative to a successful outcome. The scope (and costs) can easily get out of hand, and there are many landmines hidden throughout the process. Discuss the following with a special focus on the governance considerations: Who do you tell and when (the executive team, the executive committee, the board, key donors or other stakeholders)? What is the role of each stakeholder and how do you navigate disagreements? Do the allegations warrant a full-fledged investigation or would that be an over-reaction? Do you bring in outside counsel or other third parties (forensic accountants or other experts) and when? What is the proper scope of an investigation? What are the legal and privilege issues involved, in particular when interviewing employees and former employees? What are the communications/PR concerns? What do you do with the findings? Do you do a written report? What should come out of the investigation (employment actions, governance reforms)? Do you self-report to the IRS or other regulators? What do you make public and when? And what is the role of the board (or a board or special committee) in navigating each of these questions?

Since the end of the pandemic, charities are continuing to pursue various fundraising opportunities in the constant search for sustainable, unrestricted revenue. Through fundraising opportunities like events, commercial co-venture, and fundraising platforms, charities continue to struggle to maintain revenue streams. As consumer preference and regulatory environments change, charities will need to continue to adapt to changing circumstances, as well as adapt to the introduction of newer models of raising revenue.

Planning Vehicles and Trusts (CRTs, Annuities, etc.) (Apr 2024)

For a nonprofit, “Cash is (often) King”: A donor receives a charitable deduction for an outright cash gift and the nonprofit can immediately put it to work to fund a building, a program or a project. However, a donor’s long-term objectives to support a nonprofit might be better accomplished in structuring a deferred gift, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust. This session examines a variety of gifts that can fund planned vehicles and fulfill a donor’s charitable intent as well as personal financial goals.
