Fundraising Compliance from “Soup to Nuts”

For better or worse (we hope mostly for better) the world of online fundraising has effectively changed the game for many small nonprofits. New online tools and donation processing portals have put the substantial power of technology into the hands of worthy charities that may not be able to afford it just a year or two ago. However, this “brave new world” of fundraising does not allow organizations to ignore the compliance rules and regulations when it comes to fundraising in New York.  Have you ever wondered what your organization’s responsibilities were when soliciting donations? Have you wondered if you’ve registered properly as a tax-exempt New York State nonprofit? Do you have your charitable solicitation license? Whether it be by tried and true methods (mailing annual appeals) or branching out (email or social media appeals) or even taking advantage of online community fundraising events (like Giving Tuesday or NYGivesDay) this webinar will help ensure that you know the steps to annual fundraising compliance, give you tools and resources to complete those steps and a place to go if you should need help bringing your organization into compliance with New York laws.


 For members who cannot attend, feel free to register and we’ll send you a link to the recording at the end of the session.
