Intellectual property is a complex and dynamic area that affects nonprofits. The intellectual property of a nonprofit can be one of its most significant assets, so securing it is critical. Common issues that arise include protecting names and logos, copyrights, patents, trademarks, publicity rights, social media and more.

This workshop will be presented by  Anthony M. Ramirez, Associate, of Morrison & Foerster. Click here to register.
Wednesday, May 10
9:30am - 11:30am

Many grassroots organizations rely on volunteers, interns, and independent contractors to help successfully carry out their day-to-day functions, and it's important to be mindful of the rules that govern the nonprofit workforce. There are unique aspects of operating a nonprofit that can make compliance issues trickier than in other environments.

Learn how to assess volunteers and keep in compliance with wage and hour laws; how to evaluate interns and specific laws that cover them; and understanding the guidelines to review for accurate classification of employees and independent contractors.

Message from the President, Sharon Stapel: Advocacy is Our Job
In the past few months, we've seen a number of proposals from the new federal administration that would have a significant impact on the nonprofit sector. We, as nonprofits, have the expertise and experience to know how these proposals will affect our day-to-day work, and we must use that expertise to advocate for the solutions we think are most effective. Advocacy is our job - whether we see ourselves as advocacy organizations or not. We advocate every day on behalf of the people, communities, issues, spaces and resources that we know creates a better society for all of us. We fight for our causes and what we do every day is exactly the same as advocating for or against proposed public policies, laws and budgets that impact our work and our sector.

There is often much confusion about what 501(c)(3) nonprofits can, and cannot, do and say under IRS law. With the new administrations focus on  repealing the "Johnson Amendment"  to allow nonprofits to become partisan organizations, the conversation gets a bit murky. But the solution is clear: nonprofits are a critical part of our society and have information, data, experiences and models that can and must be shared. All nonprofits should be doing this. If we want to lobby on various bills or policies that we think are necessary and effective, we can - so long as we register and report this lobbying if it reaches a certain threshold. These things align with our mission and our purpose. But we do not want to be in the position of partisan endorsements of political candidates or political ideologies; Our mission-focused work should not be compromised or used as "leverage".
 
In recent days, after the withdrawal of the American Health Care Act, many of us are wondering about the next administrative priorities, and how they will impact the sector. Tax reform is already being discussed, and may have implications about charitable donations. Infrastructure bills could have opportunities for nonprofits. The executive "skinny" budget puts funding of many nonprofits front and centerThese policies affect our work, and we have to be at the forefront of these conversations.
 
We at NPCC encourage you to get involved in the conversations that most impact your organization's work. If you are unsure about whether it is lobbying, let us know and we'll find the resources you need to make informed decisions. We need your voice. We need your advocacy.

Funding for Sanctuary Jurisdictions Could Be at Risk
On March 23, 2017, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated that the Department of Justice plans to withhold funds from "sanctuary cities," a common phrase for cities, states or jurisdictions that do not cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This practice was first formally articulated in President Trump's January 2017 executive order directing the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to compile a list of federal funds given to sanctuary jurisdictions and to deem them ineligible from most federal grants, among other things. While the order does not specifically list what sources of funding are at risk, Congressional Republicans in the past have targeted the funding sources listed below:
  • The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program (criminal justice)
  • U.S. Economic Development Administration grants (job creation, public works projects, and other economic development opportunities)
  • The State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (reimbursement of jurisdictions for costs associated with detaining immigrants)
  • The Community Development Block Grant program (housing, infrastructure, and business development projects)
  • The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services provides (community policing)

President Trump Releases 'Skinny Budget'
On March 16, 2017 President Trump released a partial outline of his 2018 budget, also known as 'skinny budget', which proposes funding cuts to human services, art, and legal groups while increasing military and homeland security spending.  While the budget proposed cuts that are worrying to nonprofits , this budget is only a draft and must be passed by Congress in order to be enacted.

Education Department Says Loan Forgiveness Applications May Be Rescinded
More than 550,000 people have applied for a federal program that promises to repay their remaining student loans after they work 10 years in a government or nonprofit job. Now the education department says some of those applications shouldn't have been approved and can be rescinded at any time. 

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which was created in 2007, allows those with high student loan balances relative to their income to have the balance of their loans canceled if they work in government or nonprofit jobs for 10 years. In a legal filing submitted last week, the  Education Department  suggested that borrowers could not rely on the program's administrator, FedLoan Servicing, to say accurately whether they qualified for debt forgiveness.  Click here to read more .

Tax Lien Sale Threatens Hundreds of NYC Nonprofits - Is Your Nonprofit on the List?
Prior to 2012, nonprofits could apply for and hold permanent property tax exemptions from the Department of Finance. In 2016, New York City Council reformed the law in an attempt to improve compliance and started requiring nonprofits to file annually for renewal. While the reformed law included some improvements for nonprofits, hundreds, if not thousands, of NYC nonprofits today are still surprised to find out they have lost property tax exemptions that have been in place for a generation or more, according to Paula Segal, senior staff attorney for the Community Development Project at the Urban Justice Center (UJC) and founding director of 596 Acres, a community land access advocacy group. As a part of the reformed law, City Council publishes a list of all nonprofits that have failed to renew - is your nonprofit on it? Click here to read more.
Cybersecurity Law Went Into Effect March 1, 2017: Exemption for Nonprofits
Government Relations Council member Bond, Schoeneck & King  successfully advocated for an exemption for nonprofits in cybersecurity final regulations issued by the NY State Department of Financial Services (DFS) on February 16, 2017. These regulations, aimed at banks, but written to include nonprofits, which are already covered by cybersecurity laws, would have imposed significant new financial and administrative burdens on nonprofits  Because of the advocacy of Bond, Schoeneck & King, led by Tracy E. Miller, DFS granted an exemption for nonprofits.
Governor's Budget Proposes Changes to "Charitable Gaming" 
The NYS Executive Budget (the Governor's proposed budget) Section MM has proposed changes to charitable gaming provisions, including charitable bingo or raffles, including increased ability to advertise online, increase prize limits and more.

The idea of incorporating equity in philanthropy is gaining traction in the field. The reasons why may be obvious - from longstanding commitments to helping those most marginalized to recent electoral outcomes. But the how of embracing equity can prove elusive - especially when foundations turn that equity lens inward. In this session, you'll hear what foundations are doing broadly to incorporate equity internally, as well as ways three specific funders are making equity a part of their day-to-day operations. Presented by William Cordery, Program Officer, Strong Local Economies, Surdna Foundation; Samantha Gilbert, Vice President, Talent and Human Resources, Ford Foundation; Edgar Villanueva, Vice President of Programs and Advocacy, Schott Foundation for Public Education; and Kris Putnam-Walkerly (Moderator), MSW, President, Putnam Consulting Group.  Click here to watch the recording.
