Understanding the Fundamentals of Nonprofit Organizations: An 8-Part Business Law Course for Nonprofit Leaders

April 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Center is proud to be partnering with the DC Bar Pro Bono Center on this series!

As a nonprofit leader, you have a lot on your plate. Raising funds, managing the organization’s programs, supervising staff, and developing a strategic vision for the organization are just a few of your duties. At the same time you need to familiarize yourself with many areas of the law: IRS regulations, local and federal employment law, contract law, risk management and intellectual property law. At times, it can be too much to handle.

This course, sponsored by the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center and Center for Nonprofit Advancement, can help by giving you an overview of critical legal issues that apply to nonprofit organizations, including:
• The basic IRS requirements for nonprofit organizations,
• Best practices in nonprofit governance,
• How local and federal employment laws apply to your organization,
• The ABCs of insurance and risk management,
• Information about accounting and fiscal controls,
• Issues to consider when reviewing a contract, and
• How to protect your trademarks and other intellectual property.

The eight session course will be taught by expert lawyers and accountants with experience dealing with nonprofit organizations.

The eight sessions will be held from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m., every Tuesday, beginning April 6, 2021 (April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4, 11, 18, & 25).

The course is designed for nonprofit leaders with significant management responsibilities and other staff that seek to develop their management capabilities.

At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion from the Center for Nonprofit Advancement.

There is a one-time $35 charge for the entire course.
