New Year Brings Internal Assessments for Nonprofits

By Zachary S. Kester, JD, LLM, CFRM, at Charitable Allies

Every year in January many nonprofit organizations wisely take time to regroup and assess what worked and what didn’t in the previous year. Now is also an excellent time to review compliance requirements that some nonprofits inadvertently overlook.

This checklist can be very helpful in making sure your organization is off to a good start. Taking the time to assess your organization is a valuable tool enabling you to avoid distracting inquiry letters from regulatory agencies as well as awkward conversations among nonprofit management and boards of directors.

Through this annual assessment process, many organizations find at least one issue that they need to address. But many nonprofit managers and board members don’t know where to go for cost-effective, experienced and sophisticated legal advice. They should consider Charitable Allies, a 501(c)(3) educational charity and public interest law firm for nonprofits.

With highly experienced legal, accounting and training personnel, Charitable Allies (www.charitableallies.org ) provides all manner of legal and educational services for boards, officers management and staff of myriad charities throughout the sector. From basic one-time questions about a single matter to training for boards and officers to complex reorganization or merger of activities, Charitable Allies is your go-to cost-effective provider of legal services to nonprofit organizations.

You can contact Zac Kester, Executive Director, at 317-429-1649 or zkester@charitableallies.org.
