Whether you are a church, synagogue, mosque or ashram, there are legal requirements and considerations that impact your activities and operations in the community.

To help you better understand these requirements and their interplay with your religious principles and ministry, we have crafted a 30-minute webinar that blends the expertise of nonprofit attorney Laura Solomon, Esq., founder of Laura Solomon and Associates, to present an overview of what every faith-based nonprofit group needs to know about:

  • the ways in which religious principles and requirements (e.g. canon law) impact formation documents like Articles and Bylaws
  • Challenges with regulators like the IRS and local real estate boards on tax issues
  • Structural considerations (subsidiary formation)  for religious vs. non-religious charitable activities
  • Regulatory requirements that apply to foreign ministry work and international grantmaking

If you’ve been searching for a learning experience that embraces what distinguishes your faith-based organization from other community nonprofits, we urge you take advantage of this program which will include 30 minutes at the end for you to ask specific questions that concern you.
