October Webinar Sale - 50% Off

special_offer_tag.jpgCreating and Operating Nonprofit Affiliates

Can you do everything you want with your current nonprofit organization?

Can you offer deductibility for charitable contributions?

Can you attract private foundation grants?

Can you lobby extensively for your cause?

Can you support or oppose candidates for elective office?

Can you have unlimited investment income without jeopardizing your tax status?

Can you obtain exemption from local property taxes?

Can you avoid identifying your major donors to the IRS?

You can’t do all of these things with a single nonprofit organization.  To do what you want, you may need to form and operate one or more affiliated nonprofits, with different tax status that offers different possibilities.

This webinar will discuss the legal differences between 501(c)(3) public charities (and private foundations), 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations, and 501(c)(6) trade associations.  It will discuss some traditional reasons — and some new reasons — why you may want to create another entity to do what you can’t do now, whatever your current tax status.

Price: $44.50

That's 50% off its regular price of $89.

Offer expires October 30th. New subscribers can also start a FREE three-month trial subscription (an additional $17.95 value).
