Lynn Gluckman of Blumberg Segal has presented on “Managing Restricted Gifts: Cy pres and avoiding the need for Cy pres” for the Charity and Not-For-Profit Law section of the Ontario Bar Association.

Here is further information on the program held on September 10, 2015:

Managing Restricted Gifts: Cy pres and avoiding the need for Cy pres
Charity and Not-For-Profit Law | 12:30 pm – 1:45 pm

Attend this program to learn how to reduce the likelihood of problems arising from restricted gifts and how to manage problems once they exist.  Sometimes a charity receives funds with a restriction, which may be impossible or impractical to implement, thus creating significant problems for the charity either now or in the future.  Charities and others holding charitable property may seek through either the court system or a simplified process with the Ontario Public Guardian and Trustee to have the court amend the restrictions, which can be an expensive process.  Also, there is no guarantee of success as courts are reluctant to alter restrictions.  Register now to gain practical insights from our expert speakers on how to save your client/organization time, hassle and money, by proactively managing the gifting process to minimize problems with restricted gifts.
