*The National Center for Family Philanthropy limits attendance to private and family foundation staff and trustees only.*
Is it possible to make grants to individuals or organizations that are not charities? Can we support grantees where one or more of our board members has a conflict of interest? What process do we need to follow with regard to our discretionary grants, and is there a limit to the proportion of our grantmaking that can go to these grants? Do we need a grant agreement for every grant we make? Can we support public elections or engage in lobbying efforts? What kind of liability do we have if a project we fund causes damages or injury to an individual?
Join us for this follow-up to the tremendously popular “Toeing the Line
” webinar we held last December on common legal pitfalls in foundation governance. Featuring a case study format, this session will focus on many of the most common legal pitfalls in family foundation grantmaking, and will be led nationally recognized legal advisors Andras Kosaras and Jim Joseph of Arnold and Porter. Not to worry – the session will feature plenty of time for Q & A to ensure that all of your questions are answered!
