Upcoming Free Webinar Wanting to Do Good: The Requirements and Pitfalls of Starting a Nonprofit in DC

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 12:00pm-1:00pm


A tax-exempt nonprofit organization can be both deeply rewarding and tremendously challenging. Many nonprofit founders are motivated by a desire to do good or to fulfill an important, unmet need in their community. However, starting a tax-exempt nonprofit also involves complex state and federal laws. It is important to ensure that your organization starts with the proper legal foundation.

This webinar is intended to provide guidance to those interested in setting up a tax-exempt nonprofit in the District of Columbia and to help them navigate state and federal laws. Nonprofit Program Podcast Series: What If You Have a Board Meeting and No One Shows Up? Description Building a strong board for your organization can often be a challenge. But what can often be more of a challenge is making sure the members are in attendance and engaged. Please join Regina Hopkins of the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, and Susan Schaefer, Principal of Resource Partners, LLC for a lively discussion about effective and efficient board building.
