Nonprofits learn about protecting themselves against legal pitfalls

The CFO hosted the new fiscal year’s first education session for Agency Partners on July 22. Experts from Ollis & Co. spoke to more than 50 nonprofit representatives about the protections and pitfalls they, as employers and officers of a 501(c)3, could potentially face in today’s litigious society. These professionals learned about a not-for-profit organization’s exposures and vulnerabilities resulting from the financial consequences of litigation brought by allegations of mismanagement by donors, discrimination by employees, or an extortion threat to publicize proprietary information.

Heavy stuff, but important when it comes to protecting the long-term viability of an organization, and the well-being of its employees, board, donors, and volunteers.
