Many Canadian philanthropist are wanting to advance international causes. What are some of the considerations, cautions and options available when deciding how best to support such initiatives outside of Canada?
The second presentation on June 1, 2016 I will be presenting with Doug Puffer of Simon Fraser University on Gift Acceptance and Managing Risk.
Gift Acceptance and Managing Risk
Speakers: Mark Blumberg, BA, LLM, Blumberg Segal LLP; Doug Puffer BSc, Simon Fraser University
Charity’s policies for accepting and managing donations must be designed to protect the donor and the donee and at the same time encourage fundraisers and advisors to seek the best philanthropic strategies for clients and prospects. Charity’s internal policies for accepting gifts, counting, etc. can be either limiting or liberating, but they are critical as they form the backbone of a charity.
Do you require legal advice with respect to Canadian or Ontario non-profits or charities?
Mark Blumberg is a partner at the law firm of Blumberg Segal LLP in Toronto and works almost exclusively in the areas of non-profit and charity law.
