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.
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.

I liked his presentation, a bit relaxed with some humor
Very substantive information, beyond what I anticipated.
Fantastic course and I highly recommend it.
Talked to fast to take in information
Attorney Kulkin was the BEST non profit CLE online instructor. So many instructors are extremely boring but he is an excellent presenter and is able to keep one's attention throughout.
This was an excellent webinar. It could have been longer.
I enjoyed the depth and appropriate level of complexity presented. I also really appreciated the speed of the presentation. It was a lot of information in a short period of time. Thank you.
Presenter is well spoken and clearly explains the subject matter.
This guy is awesome!
Mr. Kulkin was completely familiar with his subject and highly enthusiastic in his presentation. The issues were presented clearly, with strong support from statutes and numerous real-world examples. He emphasized non-profit tax exemptions and deductions as "taking money from Uncle Sam's pocket" in furtherance of a charitable purpose for the public good - proper record-keeping is a must!
