Annual Tax Update
For the nonprofit sector, changes made under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act continue to unfold. The IRS has recently issued some clarifications and proposed regulations in a number of areas related to this tax reform legislation, including:
- Changes to the unrelated business income taxation landscape around taxation of fringe benefits, and the “silo” rule regarding different unrelated business activities
- The new private university net investment income tax
- Proposed regulations intended to stop states from enacting workarounds to the limitation on SALT deductions
- Implications of increases to the standard deduction
This session will focus on these developments, as well as other changes for the sector, including donor disclosure requirements for non-501(c)(3) exempt entities, updated applications for seeking recognition of exempt status; and (hopefully) long-awaited clarification in the donor-advised fund area.

Legal Fundamentals of Nonprofit Fundraising
Most nonprofit organizations rely on donations for some or all of their funding. Competing for limited donor dollars often has nonprofits looking at unique opportunities to attract funding. However, fundraising is a strictly regulated activity that can be fraught with legal complexity. This presentation will cover the legal fundamentals of fundraising by tax-exempt organizations, including the following topics:
- The regulatory scheme overseeing fundraising, the Colorado Charitable Solicitations Act, and multi-state charitable registration issues
- Fundraising events and charitable auctions, including income tax deductibility for donors, unrelated business income tax implications, and sales tax issues
- Raffles/bingos and potential gambling concerns
- Commercial co-ventures and cause-related marketing
- Merchandise programs
- Donor receipts/Substantiation requirements
- Gift Acceptance Policies
- Fundraising for non-501(c)(3) entities
Presented by: Cara Lawrence, Esq., Tierney Lawrence LLC, Denver, CO

Office of Foreign Assets Control and Nonprofit Organizations
The Office of Foreign Assets Control wields significant power to enforce economic sanctions. This presentation will present a high-level overview of the Office of Foreign Assets Control and how its work can impact nonprofit organizations.  
Presented by John R. Valentine, Esq., Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP, Denver, CO
 
3:50 pm
Directors & Officers Insurance for Nonprofits
Nonprofits often depend on volunteers to serve on their Boards of Directors and, like for-profit businesses, employ or engage executives and others who demand protection from the threat of litigation arising from commercial and financial activities and the personal risk and expense such litigation entails. Lee Terry will provide a primer on the ABCs of directors and officers liability insurance for nonprofit organizations. He will also provide practical tips on obtaining the right coverage for your nonprofit considering, among other issues, the limits on the protections that the Colorado Revised Nonprofit Corporation Act, the Colorado Volunteer Services Act and the Federal Volunteer Protection Act provide.
