Legal Context of Nonprofit Organizations

"Good Counsel: Meeting the Legal Needs of Nonprofits" (2012)

This book is the first-of-its-kind overview by a sitting General Counsel that distills the legal needs of a million charitable tax-exempt organizations in the United States.
Learn what "makes a nonprofit a nonprofit", the laws that apply to tax-exempt organizations because of their special status, and the wide range of business laws that apply to nonprofits as well.

Ms. Rosenthal will also discuss how good governance ties to mission and fundraising, how to protect the organization's name and monetize its original works, and more.
