Creating and Operating Nonprofit Affiliates (Recorded)

Creating and Operating Nonprofit Affiliates (Recorded)

This program was recorded on June 8, 2023

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.

It will also discuss who should be in control?  And how you should operate the affiliates so that you don’t lose the benefit of the intended separation?

The U.S. Supreme Court long ago recognized that tax-exempt nonprofits could be operated in tandem in order to accomplish their broader purposes.  Because of the limitations inherent in each form of exemption, many organizations have taken steps to expand their organizational structure to accomplish more. 

Join the conversation to learn how you can be more effective.

Nonprofit Issues® editor Don Kramer, recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America in nonprofit and charity law, will lead the discussion.  Tish Mogan, Standards for Excellence Consultant for the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations, will facilitate.  The program is offered in conjunction with PANO.

Participants will receive a package of materials, including several Ready Reference Pages showing in graphic form the differences between different types of nonprofits.
