Let’s Go Legal! – Tacoma

June 21, 2018 | 9:30 am – 12:30 pm


You care about your mission and want to make sure your organization does what it needs to do to succeed. You need to know some basic nonprofit law in order to stay compliant and protect your assets. Developed by Washington Nonprofits and Wayfind, Let’s Go Legal breaks down nonprofit law into its must-know pieces to help busy board members stay on the right road towards their mission.

Let’s Go Legal covers the five main topics board members need to know: State Law, Federal Law, Fundraising, Employment, and Intellectual Property. Let’s Go Legal shows how your organization is like a car. You need to register it with the state, driving on federal roads involves an additional set of rules, you need fuel to move your car forward (that’s the money part), the people in the car matter, and the look and feel of your car make it special. It covers what you need to know about each of these topics and provides an easy checklist to make sure your organization covers it all.
