Area of ExcellenceInformation Technology

In today's digital age, many nonprofits collect and store valuable and sensitive information about their target audience, including their client base and supporters, which comes with innumerable benefits. While such information serves to advance the sector's work, nonprofits are responsible for protecting this data in the face of persistent security threats.
Cybersecurity and digital privacy have become top-of-mind issues across the nonprofit sector and it is more important now than ever before for nonprofits to manage their legal risks. While perfect security isn't possible, assessing data risks and implementing practical security measures can help organizations minimize the likelihood and severity of cyber-attacks  and data breaches. This workshop is c o-sponsored by  New York Lawyers for the Public Interest  (NYLPI) and NPCC.  Click here to register .

The current administration has launched a marked and terrifying increase in aggressive immigration enforcement causing nonprofits and service providers to question how to continue effective operations and ensure that their immigrant clients have access to their services.
New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), pro bono partners Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, and community partners, authored and released a special Guidance to Nonprofits Regarding Immigration
 aimed at supporting the nonprofit community in protecting most at-risk clients in the face of this new reality. NYLPI and Human Services Council are hosting a free legal training for nonprofit leaders on immigration enforcement.
An expert panel of attorneys, nonprofit, and social service leaders will review legal questions and scenarios, discuss practical considerations for implementing this guidance, and provide valuable insight on best practices.

Tax Reform
On September 27th the so-called Big Six (House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WY), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and White House economic policy chief Gary Cohn) announced tax reform proposals. While tax reform is complex, the National Council of Nonprofits has outlined what we know so far about the reforms that could affect the nonprofit sector.
Individual income tax rates : Calls for increasing the "zero bracket" (the income level that pays no federal taxes) and eliminates the seven current tax brackets, replacing them with three - 12%, 25%, and 35%, and giving the tax committees flexibility to add a fourth rate on the wealthiest taxpayers
Standard Deduction : Nearly doubles to $12,000/individual and $24,000/married couple (up from $6,300/individual and $12,600/couple)
Itemized Deductions:
  • Charitable deduction: preserved, although fewer people will itemize due to the increase in the Standard Deduction
  • Mortgage interest: preserved, same as charitable deductions, but fewer people will itemize due to the increase in the Standard Deduction
  • State and Local Taxes (SALT): framework calls for repealing the deduction (NB: as of September 29th, this proposal was receiving serious push back and there are already talks of scrapping it)
  • Others: we understand that the tax committees will be "encouraged to retain tax incentives for higher education, retirement and work"
Child Tax Credit : Increased from $1,000 per child under 17 (under current law), but the framework leaves it up to the tax committees to specify an amount; also calls for a $500 tax credit for taxpayers with non-child dependents 
Federal Estate Tax: calls for repeal
Tim Delaney, CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits, said of the proposal, "We applaud the 'Big Six' for their recognition of the importance of retaining the charitable giving incentive going forward. However, the impacts on nonprofits of doubling the standard deduction and its resulting reduction in charitable giving, repealing the estate tax, other changes that could disrupt service delivery, and greatly expanding the deficit require further consideration." As with all recent Congressional and Administration proposals, there are likely to be many changes, and there are many additional processes to go through, before anything is final.
NPCC's Response to the Department of Labor
Last year at this time, nonprofits were scrambling to comply with pending overtime regulations that would have doubled the minimum salary threshold for determining who is considered a white-collar worker and exempt from overtime payments. A federal judge recently struck down the Obama Administration overtime final rule, and the U.S. Department of Labor sought comments to its Request for Information (RFI) about future overtime regulations. NPCC surveyed our members and submitted these comments.
Federal Budget, Debt Ceiling and DACA
As we reported in NPCC's September e-newsletter, Congress was facing a possible government shut down. That decision has been put off to December 2017 through a short-term federal spending bill that also raised the debt ceiling, in a deal negotiated between the Administration and Democratic leadership. Tax reform, a federal budget, and the Johnson Amendment still remain open items. In related federal policy news, the Administration's decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy may not be final, as the Administration has reportedly struck another deal with Democratic leaders to extend DACA protections.
Employment Law Changes - What You Need to Know
New rules go into effect this fall and winter for a number of city, state, and federal employment laws, including: NYS minimum wage, paid family leave, salary history inquiries, and the Fair Chance ("Ban the Box") law. These laws grant new protections and benefits to employees and job applicants. Nonprofit employers must be aware of and comply with these new laws to avoid litigation, and financial and reputational risk. We recommend nonprofits discuss with legal counsel and staff the various laws' applicability and how best to comply. Here is a quick review of some of these developments .
For-Profit Colleges Converting to Nonprofits
BuzzFeed News is reporting that the U.S. Department of Education has approved the sale of two for-profit colleges, Kaplan University and the Art Institutes, which will allow the colleges to convert to nonprofits. Previously, the deals had to be approved by federal overseers, and the Obama administration  blocked a similar deal  fearing that schools would not actually operate as nonprofits or would avoid for-profit regulations with the conversion .
Johnson Amendment
NPCC has been talking about the Johnson Amendment for months now - and you can help keep nonprofits nonpartisan. The Wall Street Journal reports that Republicans are thinking about how "new campaign finance proposals could become bargaining chips in the negotiations." The proposals would repeal the so-called Johnson Amendment, which prohibits nonprofits from engaging in partisan activities (supporting or opposing political candidates, for example). NPCC believes that nonprofits are not Republican organizations, or Democrat organizations - they are community organizations - and we should not engage in partisanship. TAKE ACTION: Organizations that have not done so already are encouraged to sign onto the Community Letter in Support of Nonpartisanship and spread the word among your colleague organizations. See if your organization has already signed. If not, sign today. It takes less than five minutes, and will have a huge impact on the future of our sector. Thank you for supporting the nonprofit sector!

NYC Board Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey
The  NYC Board Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey was launched in June 2017 by NPCC in partnership with the NYC Nonprofit Board Development Coalition, NYC Service, and the Council of Urban Professionals. The goal of the survey is to understand how nonprofits think of diversity, equity, and inclusion on their board and results will help us identify board diversity strategies, gaps, and resources for our City's nonprofits. 

Focus groups are also being organized and we kindly request the participation of NYC nonprofit board members. The objective of the focus groups is to uncover experiences of nonprofit board members on the topic of nonprofit board diversity in NYC that can help inform the barriers of diversifying boards and potential gaps in resources.

The focus groups will be held at NYC Service, 253 Broadway, New York, NY 10007 on the following dates and times:
  • Tuesday, October 3, 8:00am - 10:00am
  • Thursday, October 5, 8:00am - 10:00am
  • Thursday, October 12, 8:00am - 10:00am
  • Tuesday, October 17, 8:00am - 10:00am
In order to help New York nonprofits thrive to build better communities for all, trauma - both direct and vicarious - faced by staff and constituents must be addressed. We heard from our members, capacity builders, and other umbrella organizations of the need to have space to learn and build self-care strategies. NPCC is  teaming up with the  Mental Health Association of New York City  (MHA-NYC) to :
  • provide a safe space and series of workshops for nonprofits to identify and address traumatic reactions of nonprofits' communities and those experienced by staff;
  • exchange and develop resources; and,
  • provide opportunities to collaborate and develop relationships among participants.
The series begins Wednesday, October 18th. This workshop series will be offered again in February 2018 to ensure all who cannot attend this fall can have an opportunity to do so. To learn more and to register, click here .

NY Attorney General Resources for Dissolving, Merging Nonprofits
The New York Not-For-Profit Corporation Law (N-PCL) was amended to make it easier for nonprofits seeking to sell their assets, merge with another organization, or dissolve. In the past, these actions had to be approved by a court; but the N-PCL amendments now allow the approval to come from either the New York Attorney General or the New York Supreme Court. The Charities Bureau of the Attorney General's Office has recently issued new guidance for the new procedures to get approval (including model documents) and a new database of approvals of property transactions and plans of dissolution to give the public access to this information.
Staten Island Real Property Transfer Tax Proposal
The New York City Department of Finance is proposing rules that will require Real Property Transfer Tax (RPTT) returns be electronically filed for Staten Island properties. The Department of Finance will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule on October 17th at 11:00am in the Department of Finance hearing room at 345 Adams Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11201. To testify, call Joan Best at (718) 488-2007 or sign up in the hearing room before the hearing begins on October 17, 2017. Comment online, by email to steffyj@finance.nyc.gov, or by mail or fax; the deadline is October 17th.
Paying for Space for Your Meetings? Here's What You Need in the Contract
For most nonprofits, meetings are the central function of the organization - and often involve renting a meeting space. What nonprofits often don't recognize, however, is that meetings are also a source of significant potential liability in the form of contract penalties, legal claims, and commitments that may go unfulfilled due to causes beyond the organization's control. Our friends at Venable LLP have a great guide on what terms you need to have in contracts you sign for meeting spaces . Click here to read more.
Human Services Council RFP Rater
The Human Services Council (HSC) has launched RFP Rater.

Comprised of 60 weighted questions addressing program design, operating requirements, financial adequacy, performance expectations, compliance requirements, sustainability, and the procurement process, the RFP Rater is designed to help nonprofit human services organizations understand the risks and challenges involved in government business opportunities.
