Legal Corner: Avoiding Trouble While Doing Good
If you don't know your nonprofit's legal limits or your state’s Attorney General’s role in regulating your nonprofit and your charitable giving, you probably should.

From donation solicitations to audits, the State Attorneys General oversee nonprofit compliance. Their top 10 list of most important issues will open your organization's eyes and show you how failing to be sufficiently transparent or violating state fundraising laws could bring about unwanted attention.
In this webinar, you'll learn:
- An understanding of the State Attorneys General and their mission to protect charities and charitable assets

- How to keep your organization in the clear
