Top Legal Issues for Small Volunteer Organizations (Recorded)

This program was recorded August 12, 2021

Are you involved with a small nonprofit organization run by volunteers?  If so, you are not alone.

About two-thirds of all charities registered with the Internal Revenue Service have gross revenue of less than $50,000 a year.  They have little or no paid staff and rely on rotating groups of volunteers to run their programs and keep them out of trouble. 

They include kids’ sports leagues, booster clubs and other school-related activities, advocacy and educational groups, artistic and cultural organizations, animal rescues, social clubs, community associations, religious groups, and many others.  If you are involved with one of these organizations and want to stay small but stay legally safe, this program is for you.

Nonprofit Issues® editor Don Kramer will discuss basic legal structures, board roles and responsibilities, financial controls, personal liability, insurance, fundraising, deduction issues, record keeping, grantmaking, required governmental filings, and other issues small groups face on a regular basis.

Volunteers who have real lives and don’t spend a lot of it worrying about the intricacies of nonprofit and tax law will come away with a checklist of important issues and materials to keep their organizations out of trouble and more focused on pursuing their missions.
