APRIL 2019

All workshops are held at NPCC unless otherwise noted.
Establishing Your Nonprofit's Brand Personality
Thurs., April 4
9:30-11 a.m.

Does your event feel inviting or intimidating? Is your voice on social media friendly or formal? Are your email appeals passionate or provocative?  Your organization has a personality-a tone and style-that is reflected in how you present yourself and how people respond to you. Big Duck's vice president, Farra Trompeter, will explain what having a "brand personality" means and how it can help your organization engage people and differentiate itself. She'll share examples and lead you through an exercise to craft your own brand personality. We'll then ask for a volunteer or two to share their drafted personality and get feedback through a live critique of their brand identity via their website.

How to Effectively Lead Your Strategic Planning Process
Weds., April 10
9:30-11:30 a.m.

This workshop will start with an overview of the strategic planning process and the various components of a strong plan. The planning process will cover all aspects of a nonprofit's work: governance, management, operations, finances, fundraising, facilities, and programming.
Although parts of the training will be collaborative, there will be mini breakout sessions, where participants will also work together to conduct an organizational assessment and go through a refinement process to develop a set of "starter" goals for growth and success over the next three years. Each participant will leave with an understanding of how best to engage a planning committee to create a prioritized Action Plan including strategies to reach the goals delineated in a strategic plan.

6 Things You Can Do Right Now to Boost Your Board's Performance
Weds., April 17
9:30-11:30 a.m.

There are several high-impact strategies that nonprofit executives and board leadership can immediately deploy to boost the performance - and thus, overall impact - of their nonprofit's board. Back again this year by popular demand, during this session, Robert Acton - Principal & Founder of Cause Strategy Partners and BoardLead -- will present six interventions to optimize board performance. These interventions fall into three key categories: a) building a stronger board, b) better use of board meetings, and c) strengthening board culture.  Change often takes months of planning, socialization, buy-in and execution. This session is designed for nonprofit executives and board leadership who need their boards to improve faster. Utilizing a highly-interactive learning style, this session will arm participants with innovative ideas and specific action steps that will accelerate your board's performance today.

Tips for a Successful Software Implementation
Tues., April 16
1-2 p.m.

Technology is changing fast, but where does your organization start to keep up? It seems that every finance department that has undertaken a software implementation, has a horror story to tell. While most eventually succeed at some level, there is a proven methodology that can improve your process and outcomes. Join us during this webinar as we review 21 questions every nonprofit CEO should ask when evaluating software solutions to improve the results they are looking for and their return on investment!

Charitable Solicitation Registration: Top Things You Need to Know
Weds., April 24
1-2 p.m.

Must every charity register to solicit funds from the public? How do online donations fit into the picture? This workshop is a comprehensive presentation on charitable solicitation registration, what is required, and what it takes to be compliant. The focus will be on recognizing and managing state registration requirements. Participants can come prepared to ask questions and walk away with information on how to simplify the process. Organizations must register in any state in which they solicit donations. Solicitations can take many forms - from hosting an event, to mailing letters, to having a "Donate Now" button on your website. In today's world, most organizations solicit in not one or two, but a variety of different ways and they often cross borders. The session will cover the following topics: s tate registration requirements; o nline fundraising; w hy compliance should be a priority; w hat it takes to register, including costs; and h ow to manage registrations.  Participants will be able to define charitable solicitation registration, demonstrate an understanding of what requirements must be met to support their fundraising program, and formulate a strategy for ensuring and implementing their organization's compliance.

We are thrilled to launch NPCC' Declaration of Nonprofit Rights , our bold vision for a powerful nonprofit sector. It is NPCC's North Star, the guiding principles that form the basis of our worldview of the sector's needs and potentials, and in turn, guide our day-to-day public policy work to meet those needs and potential.

The Declaration articulates NPCC's understanding, through the four principles, of what nonprofits must have in order to be engaged and effective.

The rights-based language is intentional, and provides an aspirational vision that we will work to achieve.

The Declaration is not a call to action; it is action. 

Read more from the president.

NPCC Hosted Press Conference with Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney to Unveil Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019
On March 29th, NPCC hosted a press conference  (video here) with Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney who announced her intention to introduce the Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019 in early April, as well as her intention to sign on to HR 1223, which repeals the federal UBIT on transportation benefits. Other partners present were the Human Services Council, Ballet Tech, City Meals on Wheels, UJA Federation, LiveOn NY, InterExchange, VISIONS/Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Zone 126, Chinese American Planning Council, and more.

Congresswoman Maloney announced she would co-sponsor House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn's bill (HR 1223) to repeal the federal transportation UBIT. In addition, Carolyn Maloney (New York) will be introducing the Nonprofit Relief Bill, a complementary bill to Clyburn's that will address other harmful aspects of the federal tax reform bill and provide much needed updates for nonprofit business practices:
  • Repeal the provision of the tax law that requires nonprofits to calculate separately the taxes on each "separate" unrelated business income "trade or business" such as selling t-shirts, or operating a coffee shop
  • Updates the Mileage Reimbursement Rate from 14 cents per mile to 58 cents per mile (unchanged since the 1980s)
  • Extends tax-credits to nonprofits under the new paid family and medical leave provisions of the 2017 tax law. These tax credits are currently applied to for-profits only and explicitly exclude nonprofits
We need bipartisan support for both bills to pass, and Congress members need to hear from constituents in their own communities in order to support these bills. Please call on your membership to contact their Congress members immediately to provide relief to nonprofits everywhere.

Contact your Senators and Representatives Directly : Please take any or all of these effective ways of communicating with Members of Congress:
  • Thank Congresswoman Maloney through @CarolynBMaloney or @RepMaloney for announcing the Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019.
  • Call your  Representative at 202-225-3121 and your  Senators at 202-225-3121 and tell them the federal tax law harms nonprofits and ask them to: a) repeal transportation tax on nonprofits and b) co-sponsor Congresswoman Maloney's Nonprofit Relief Act.
  • Email your  Representative and  Senators using their contact forms (found on their home pages) and deliver the same message - "a) repeal transportation tax on nonprofits and b) co-sponsor Congresswoman Maloney's Nonprofit Relief Act of 2019."
  • Tweet your Representative and Senators to deliver this simple message:                          "[Representative/Senator's Twitter Handle] The Federal Tax Law harms nonprofits. Repeal the #nonprofit transportation tax (Code Sec 512a7). It diverts scarce dollars from our mission of serving people in our state. Don't hold #nonprofits hostage to partisan bickering; repeal the nonprofit transportation tax before 4/15"
UBIT Fix in Final NYS Budget
On March 31, 2019, New York passed the FY2020 State Budget. In addition to the things you've been hearing about, like a ban on plastic bags and congestion pricing, the Budget contained a fix (in S1509(c) Part Z, Section 8) needed to correct a drafting error in the state transportation UBIT (that created problems for those organizations with a fiscal year start date that does not align with the calendar year): "§ 8. Section 2 of chapter 369 of the laws of 2018 amending the tax law relating to unrelated business taxable income of a taxpayer, is amended to read as follows: § 2. This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to amounts paid or incurred on and after January 1, 2018." Because of this fix, nonprofits will not have to pay state transportation UBIT taxes, regardless of when their fiscal years start. We want to thank our phenomenal coalition partners in getting this done: Commision on Independent Colleges and Universities, Fiscal Policy Institute, Human Services Council,  Lawyers Alliance for New York. Mazars USA, NYCON, Philanthropy New York, RSM USA, UJA Federation, and Venable LLP.

NPCC Joined Members NYCLU, Lawyers Alliance for New York, and Citizens Union to Oppose Governor's Amendments to Donor Disclosure Law
As we've mentioned,  NPCC, the Lawyers Alliance for New York, Citizen Union, and NYCLU have all sued the Attorney General regarding the Governor's donor disclosure law, passed in 2016. The Governor, in his 2019-2020 budget proposal, suggested changes to this law. We opposed these changes, as we do not believe they will cure the constitutional infringement on nonprofit speech, and they did not make it in to the final budget.
NYC Commission on Human Rights' Sexual Harassment Training Is Out
The New York City Commission on Human Rights' Sexual Harassment training has been  posted on their website.  Under  Local Law 96 of 2018 , employers with 15 or more employees are required to conduct annual anti-sexual harassment training for all employees.  The Commission has developed an online training that will satisfy this requirement. The City training was designed to satisfy the New York State sexual harassment as well. 
Protecting Nonprofit Nonpartisanship in New York State
Assembly Member Paulin (A623) and Senator Ranzehofer (S01933) have proposed legislation that would protect nonprofit nonpartisanship by restricting 501c3 organizations from participating or intervening in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. NPCC has long supported the protections offered in the federal Johnson Amendment, now under threat.
New York State Changes to the Required Disclosure Language in Charitable Solicitations
The language and disclosure requirements for charitable solicitations, including online and direct mail, event invitations, telemarketing, grant requests, and other fundraising campaigns, vary from state-tostate. This alert focuses on solicitations in New York State, which are governed by Article 7-a of the New York State Executive Law, with enforcement carried out by the Charities Bureau of the New York State Office of Attorney General. Effective March 21, 2019, there are two new "disclosure" requirements for charitable solicitations in New York State. While the changes are modest and technical, they will require charities to review. Read the legal alert about these changes from the Lawyers Alliance for New York.
U.S. Department of Labor Proposes New Overtime Rule
The U.S. Department of Labor released its proposed rule updating the overtime salary threshold under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, reopening rulemaking on an issue that has drawn significant attention and controversy over the past four years. The salary threshold for the white-collar exemption from overtime pay would rise to $35,308 per year under the draft rules. However, this is significantly lower than New York's existing salary threshold for New York City of $52,650 to $58,500 (depending on number of employees). The federal proposed rate would be nearly 50 percent higher than the current level that was last updated in 2004, but only half as much as the increase approved by the Obama administration in 2016 (to $47,476/year) that was blocked by a federal court. The newly proposed regulations would also raise the salary threshold for highly compensated employees who are exempt from overtime pay requirements from $100,000 per year to $147,414 per year (which is higher than the proposed increase in 2016).

We Are All New York Grant Opportunity for Anti-Violence Youth Programs
Deadline to apply: Fri., April 5, 2019

The We Are All New York (WAANY) Fellowship is a 10-month professional development and networking program for nonprofit, faith, government, and community leaders throughout the five boroughs of New York City. This fellowship is dedicated to advancing New York City's diverse leaders and empowering them to become change agents to strengthen their communities and the city at large. Through skill-building seminars and a community challenge project, fellows come to understand that despite their different backgrounds, they have a lot of commonalities. Ultimately, the fellows become strong leaders and bring back valuable lessons to their communities and organizations to help build, broaden, and strengthen ethnic, cultural, and religious ties to help build a more cohesive city.

Exposure to violence increases the likelihood of one committing violence or facing violence-related fear and trauma. Youth in major cities are more likely than anyone to be exposed to violence and the aftermath. The 2018-2019 WAANY Cohort is offering grants of at least $1,000 to anti-violence youth programs that assist and empower middle school youth (ages 10-14) to address, combat, and live free from domestic and/or gun violence. The deadline is April 5, 2019. For more information and application materials,  click here  or contact Alyssa Hartstein at  hartsteina@jcrcny.org.
Understanding New York City's Sexual Harassment Training Requirements (WEBINAR)
Weds., April 3, 2019, noon-1 p.m.  
Webinar presented by the Lawyers Alliance for New York
$20 to register (free for New York Foundation grantees)

New York State now requires all employers to provide annual sexual harassment training to all of their employees, and, effective April 1 of this year, New York City will also require organizations with at least 15 employees to provide annual training. The City's requirements are similar, but not identical, to the State's requirements.  New York City plans to post a model training, which any employer can download for free, on or about the day the law becomes effective. A deputy commissioner from the New York City Commission on Human Rights will explain how your organization can offer legally compliant training, and there will be plenty of time for questions.  Learning Objectives: This webinar will explain which organizations are covered by the NYC law; who, what, when, where, and how your employees must be trained; and what substantive content satisfies both New York City and New York State legal requirements.  Presenters:  Dana Sussman, Deputy Commissioner for Policy and Intergovernmental Affairs, New York City Commission on Human Rights, and  Judith Moldover , Senior Staff Attorney for the Lawyers Alliance for New York. This webinar is intended for senior managers and human resources professionals. For more information, and to register, click here.

This seminar is FREE as part of the Pfizer Strategic Legal Thinking Seminars for Nonprofit Executives
Deadline to register: April 2, 2019 at noon

In the nonprofit sector today, many organizations are expanding their programs by broadening their geographical reach, collaborating with others, creating affiliates, and/or increasing their budget and staff size. In many instances, even for community-based organizations, these expanded activities involve issues such as charitable solicitation that cuts across state lines. This seminar will review many of the basic legal questions that arise as nonprofits seek to expand their programs and services.  Topics will include the different ways to structure affiliate relationships and how to protect your organization's tax-exempt status and obtain authority to do business in other states when doing so. The seminar will include a review of laws related to solicitation of funds from donors in other states, via the internet, and by other means. The presentation will also cover the legal issues that arise when collaborating and contracting with third parties to obtain or provide goods and services. It will identify some of the practical and operational issues that nonprofits experience when expanding, such as those related to facilities, human resources, governance, intellectual property, and insurance. To register for a New York City spot, please send an e-mail no later than noon on April 2, 2019 to nfpseminar@lawyersalliance.org with your name, organization, and full contact information and put "April 11 Nonprofit Expansion" in the subject line. Advance registration is required and space is limited.
