Charities and other nonprofits are increasingly entering into different forms of affiliations and collaborations – including MOUs, mergers, and joint ventures. Some collaborations are triggered by financial crisis or succession problems. Others are initiated for strategic reasons, or at the urging of a key funder. Too often, nonprofits lack competent counsel to guide them through the process of evaluating, structuring, and implementing the right form of affiliation to further their charitable mission in compliance with all federal and state laws and regulations.
Please join Laura Solomon, Esq. for a practical session designed to help you understand, evaluate, and effectively implement the right form of nonprofit collaboration for your organization.
