Jan. 25, 2007

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.
