Topics will include:

  • the basic requirements for becoming a 501(c)(3);

South King County:

This training is part of our South King County Nonprofit Legal Training Series and is intended for residents of S. King County and organizations that serve S. King County residents. In the event that the workshop fills up registrants outside of S. King County will be waitlisted. This training is also sponsored by The Seattle Foundation and City of Kent and is a partnership Communities Rise, WA Secretary of State and WA Nonprofits for nonprofits that serve South King County.

FREE legal clinic phone consultations – By appointment only!

Prior to the start of the workshop, we will host a legal clinic for nonprofits. This clinic will be hosted as phone consultations only rather than in-person appointments. During the legal clinic, each nonprofit will have approximately 45 minutes to speak with an attorney about a business-related legal matter. If you would like to schedule a clinic appointment, please contact our Program Manager Sarah Baker:
