U.S. nonprofits regularly serve charitable and educational needs around the world. Many do it right, and many do not. Charitable activity does not lose its charitable character if it’s performed outside the United States – except in some countries. Do you know where? Can your nonprofit solicit donations for overseas activity? How do “friends of” organizations raise funds for foreign organizations? What countries do not welcome US NGOs? How can your nonprofit own property in foreign countries? Can you set up foreign subsidiaries?
Please join Ryan Oberly for answers to these questions and many more. Foreign activity - and support for foreign charities - is an important piece of the 501(c)(3) world. Attend this webinar and learn how to do it right - and keep your nonprofit out of the IRS and Treasury Department crosshairs.
