Legal Matters for Corporate Foundations and Giving Programs

April 19, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - April 20, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

  • Thursday, April 20, 2023 – 4:00 pm ET
  • Cost to Philanthropy WV members – $319

Led by the Council for Foundation’s legal team, this workshop is flexibly organized to ensure that your broad legal questions for administering funds, grants, and corporate foundation activities are addressed. The legal team will provide technical and practical understanding of complex rules and regulations. Throughout the workshop, sessions will be curated with the help of insight gleaned from the Council’s top-notch legal team that interacts with nearly 2,000 foundation leaders each year, as well as trends spotted by our broader team.  It will be timely, relevant, and a deeper dive than the basics, surfacing critical insights and expertise to advance your knowledge of the corporate foundation inner workings–from administration to governance, self-dealing to grantmaking.

With each session, there will be time for questions and a deep exploration of the answers. This workshop is open to any board or staff member supporting a corporate foundation or giving program that is eager to dive into the legalities of business models and unlock the truth to effective management and leadership of corporate philanthropy.
