Nonprofit Strategic Partnerships: Building Successful Ones and Avoiding the Legal Traps

With many facing economic uncertainty and challenges, nonprofits are increasingly focused on developing and maintaining valuable partnerships — with for-profits, other nonprofits, governmental entities, and more. Solid strategic partnerships can lead to increased revenues, members or constituents, and message resonance, among other benefits.

Does your nonprofit have a blueprint for developing strategic partnerships, joint ventures, affiliations and collaborations, or commercial co-ventures? Has your organization reached a plateau with message distribution and grassroots impact? Have you structured your partnerships to maximize legal protection and minimize taxable income?

Obtain a road map to building long-lasting, successful strategic partnerships and get answers to your organization’s critical partnership challenges. Also learn what contractual, corporate governance, copyright and trademark, and other legal hurdles you may encounter along the way and how to creatively and proactively structure partnerships to overcome these hurdles. Join us to hear what charitable solicitation registration and reporting requirements may apply, and how to minimize unrelated business income from your partnerships and other ventures.

Led by some of the nation’s leaders in this area on both the consulting and legal side, this is an invaluable session you (and your advisers) will not want to miss.
