While donations and grants are often essential sources of revenue
for nonprofits, exclusive dependence on them may make nonprofits susceptible to unpredictable economic fluctuations and result in
an emphasis on fundraising at the expense of mission.
Tapping into alternative revenue streams can be an effective way to generate
sustainable income for charitable programs. If not done carefully, however, alternative revenue streams can result in excise
taxes and even jeopardize a nonprofit's tax exemption.
This session will introduce options for nonprofits seeking alternative
revenue sources without incurring negative tax consequences. Topics will include establishing for-profit subsidiaries, operative revenue-generating
projects in a charitable manner, and avoiding unrelated business income tax.

This session will focus on how organizations small and large can identify their
greatest liability risks, select appropriate coverage for their activities, and obtain reasonable premiums. Topics of discussion
will include general liability insurance, directors’ and officers’ insurance, employment practices insurance, and additional coverage
for special risks
"Anti-Terrorism Finance Laws: Rules and Best Practices for NGOs"
Thursday, February 20, 12:00 pm- 1:00

the risk of illegal transactions – and liability – by creating systems and policies to assess risks, train staff, and troubleshoot
problems that arise.
This session will introduce the complex array of anti-terrorism finance laws and explore their implications
for NGOs. Topics of discussion will include recent court cases, due diligence best practices, and common missteps in the charitable
sector. Space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 18.
"Practical Advice for International NGOs:
Duty of Care to Protect Workers"
Thursday, November 14, 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm
