A Brave New World: Strategic and Legal Issues for Today’s Non-Profit, September 12, 2017
CROWDFUNDING: THE NEW FRONTIER IN FUNDRAISING, presented by Nate Haskell. We all hear a lot about crowdfunding and how much it can do for non-profits, but how much of that is hype, and what does it take to get a crowdfunding campaign in motion, let alone successful? This session will cover the state of crowdfunding and some basic legal and logistical considerations for getting a campaign launched. But most importantly, we’ll discuss the importance of “why” – for you, for your donors, and for your organization and its mission.
MY VOLUNTEER DID WHAT?!?! presented by Mark Turner. Volunteers are the lifeblood of non-profit organizations. However, volunteers cannot be managed or controlled the way an employee can. By using volunteer guidelines, background checks, and smart management, an NPO can protect itself against well-intentioned, but wayward volunteers. These same types of procedures should also be utilized for employees.
What Matters Most: Protecting and Connecting Your Family and Your Legacy, October 18, 2017, presented by Meg Pauken.
5 things you need to do before a health crisis occurs: After a health crisis occurs, it may be too late to take certain actions that could have a significant impact on your ongoing care, your family’s ability to manage your affairs, and the handling of your estate. You want to make things as easy as possible for your family members who will be looking after you, so thinking ahead is critical, and it need not involve a re-write of your entire estate plan. There are a few key items that, if addressed, could make a dramatic difference for your loved ones.
Giving it all away while keeping them all together: charitable family foundations – not just for the super wealthy: You dream of doing something big, something lasting, something beyond your family, home, and business that will have a positive impact on the world. Your deepest hope is that your family will stay connected after you are gone, and not drift apart as so many families do. Creating a Charitable Family Foundation is a way to achieve both goals: it allows you to leave a legacy that lives on through your family. It also has significant tax benefits. A Charitable Family Foundation is a tool for doing good and a tool that allows you to start a tradition of giving that will involve your family for generations to come.
