The Pro Bono Committee of the
Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY)
in collaboration with the
Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and
Asian American Arts Alliance
Presents a free workshop on:
Legal Nuts and Bolts
of Becoming a 501©(3) Nonprofit
This workshop is for community leaders to learn more about applying for tax-exempt status under Internal Revenue Code 501©(3) and incorporating as not-for-profit/nonprofit corporations under New York State law.
Experienced attorneys will outline the benefits and drawbacks in applying for tax-exempt status, overview the application process, and give general descriptions about the obligations of non-incorporated/non-501©(3) groups under federal tax and state incorporation laws. It will also explore alternatives such as fiscal sponsorship for fundraising purposes.
NOTE: Attendees are invited to ask general questions from practitioners but this event is not intended to provide individual groups with legal advice. Referrals for attorneys, however, can be provided.
