Join us as we take a dive into what is a 501(c)3, identifying who philanthropy is accountable to, foundation board responsibilities, and reviewing key legal and ethical issues in grantmaking through scenarios and guiding principles.
Upon completing Module 2, participants will be able to:

- Recall the key legal and ethical issues in grantmaking through scenarios and guiding principles
