Legal Basics for Connecticut Nonprofits
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Scrutiny of nonprofits has never been more intense than it is right now.  Nonprofit leaders – both senior staff and the members of the board – need to be familiar with the many state and federal rules that govern nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations to make sure their organization avoids any mis-steps.  Join us for this important two-hour workshop to learn about the fundamentals of nonprofit law and their application to your organization.  We’ll answer these questions and more: 

  • What are the key state and federal rules that apply to our nonprofit tax-exempt organization?  What are the consequences for failure to comply? 
  • What are the legal and fiduciary obligations of our board members?   How can the board assure ethical conduct?
  • What are the required annual filings and disclosures that we must make to agencies and to the general public? 
  • Where are our greatest legal risks?   How do we avoid them (or plan for them)?

Presenter: Priya Morganstern is the Director of the Connecticut Program of Pro-Bono Partnership which oversees the Partnership’s services statewide (other than in Fairfield County). Priya provides direct legal services to local nonprofits; connects nonprofit organizations with volunteer attorneys; lectures frequently about nonprofit and tax-exempt organization law; and trains volunteer attorneys.

The Major Gift Process
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Ever wonder:  Where do I find potential major gift donors? How do I approach them? What are they looking for? How do I build a relationship with them, so I can eventually solicit them? What do I say in an email, or if I bump into a potential major gift donor? Come to this workshop and find out.  We will go over the specifics of The Major Gift process: Identify/ Research-Qualify-Assign/ Cultivate/Solicit/Steward.

About the presenter:

Sarah Shrewsbury started Vineyard Consulting in 2013 to help nonprofits start or enhance their major gift fundraising programs and campaigns.  Previously, for over two decades, Sarah was a major gift development officer for nationally recognized nonprofits, including thirteen years at Yale University. She raised tens of millions of dollars for multiple organizations. As a consultant, she has helped dozens of nonprofits in CT and the North East establish or fine tune the major gift processes and raise more money. Sarah is a former member of the board and Advisory Committee of the Guilford Land Conservation Trust and has lived in Guilford for most of her life. www.vineyard-consulting.com
