Program Details

Charity fundraising event planners have to worry not only about the invitation list, the menu and the program. They also have to worry about a host of legal issues that, if ignored, could turn the event into a financial and public relations disaster. This webinar will explore the top ten areas of legal concern for a charity’s annual gala dinner dance, bike-athon, day in the park, or other special fundraising event.

Additional topics include: preplanning the event; obtaining permits; complying with charitable solicitation registration statutes; staffing the event; avoiding unrelated business taxable income; tax implications for sponsors and ticket purchasers; sales, auctions and gambling activities; premises issues; releases and insurance; and tax reporting after the event. 


Some of the issues may sound familiar, but they can take on different characteristics in the context of special event fundraising. This webinar will help you develop a legal checklist to add to your event planning to assure that your event is smooth and productive.
Who Should Attend:Executive Directors, Board Members, Consultants, Attorneys and others interested in a better understanding of this topic.
