About this Book

Nuts-and-bolts guidance on the laws, rules, and regulations governing the nonprofit sector-from leading nonprofit law expert, Bruce R. Hopkins

Nonprofits must comply with stringent federal and state laws due to their special tax-exempt status; the government's ultimate threat is revocation of a nonprofit's tax-exempt status, which usually means the nonprofit's demise. Written in plain English, not "legalese," Starting and Managing a Nonprofit Organization: A Legal Guide, Sixth Edition, provides essential guidance for those interested in starting nonprofits, as well as valuable advice for leaders of established organizations.

  • Revised and expanded to include updated information on changes in laws, rules, and regulations governing the nonprofit sector
  • Covers federal tax law, nonprofit, governance, the annual information return (Form 990), charitable giving rules, and current IRS ruling policy
  • Presents essential, practical legal information in easy-to-understand English
  • Explains the applications and implications of corporate, tax, and fundraising laws for nonprofits

This easy-to-read resource contains essential information on virtually every legal aspect of starting and operating a nonprofit organization from receiving and maintaining tax-exempt status to tips for successful management practices.
