Seminar for Nonprofits Addresses Funding, Regulations

April 8, 2008

An upcoming seminar for non-profit organizations, agencies and institutions is designed to help organizers and managers comply with ever stricter government regulations while successfully pursuing elusive funding.

The session, Good Governance and the ABCs of Funding for Non-Profit Organizations, is scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 2008, starting at 9 a.m. on the campus of Rowan University in Glassboro, N.J. The seminar explores how non-profit 501(c)(3) entities can maintain corporate formalities, including avoiding conflicts of interest, as well as how to obtain necessary funding to maintain and expand services — all while avoiding mistakes that lead to lost opportunities. Topics include governance, grants, lending and tax exemption.

Featured speakers are Robert Ahrens of The Bank, Justin Kenyon of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, and Archer attorneys Frances McElhill and David Weinstein. Ms. McElhill, of Moorestown, N.J., concentrates her practice in non-profit law and tax-exempt organizations. Mr. Weinstein, also of Moorestown, concentrates his practice in tax-exempt financing for a wide range of public and private entities.

The seminar is co-sponsored by Archer, The Bank and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. For more information on the program and how to register, please click here or call Archer at (856) 616-2691.
