Course Description

Non-Profit organizations are corporate entities given different tax treatment than their for-profit counterparts, to suit their special purposes. As such, they can be subject to a litany of issues; if a corporate attorney is not careful in making their recommendations, they can cause their clients significant problems down the line. If an attorney takes the time to learn the field, however, there are tools and tricks to significantly benefit their clients.

Join non-profit corporate attorney Todd Kulkin as he provides a top-line view into a selection of these issues. This discussion will enable you to spot problems as they arise, help your clients avoid common pitfalls many non-profits fall into without even realizing, and provide you with some new tools to benefit your non-profit clients.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify the basics of for-profit/non-profit partnerships opportunities available through fiscal sponsorships
  2. Discover the “friends-of” tool for tax-exempt donor aggregation
  3. Manage international compliance issues
  4. Address the taxonomy of the tax-exempt: how to identify different types of federally recognized tax-exempt status, including liability shielding tax-exempt pass through structures
  5. Dissect the Johnson Amendment: understanding the amendment and advising clients on the impact of Trump’s Executive Order
  6. Avoid private inurement problems in complex transactions
  7. Grasp the importance of prophylactic provisions: how to save tax-exempt funds from fraudulent conveyances

Law Offices of Todd Kulkin

Todd Kulkin specializes in providing legal advice to small/medium sized businesses, start-ups, and non-for-profit organizations. He started his legal career at a large New York law firm. While working for that firm, his time was split between two practice areas: general liability defense and providing corporate and regulatory advice to major corporations. He uses his experience as a civil defense litigator to advise clients about their liability posture and how to mitigate. He left the firm to start his own practice in 2012 and, since then, has expanded his expertise to intellectual property and socially responsible entrepreneurship. Todd graduated with Honors from Brandeis University and with a J.D. in Financial Transactions from University at Buffalo (SUNY) School of Law.
