Common Legal Issues for Private Foundations (PEAK Mideast, Midwest, Southwest)

Josh Abel, grants manager and in-house counsel at the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, will share common legal issues involved in grantmaking at private foundations. Topics covered will include:

  • funding of advocacy/lobbying
  • exercising expenditure responsibility for grants to organizations that are not public charities
  • awarding grants to 509(a)(3) supporting organizations, ensuring a public charity has sufficient public support, so as not to “tip” the grantee’s exempt status.

Then, stay with us to network with colleagues in your region or to ask Josh more questions!
