Come talk story about best practices around legal compliance for nonprofit organizations
Hosted by HANO and Ahupua’a o Moloka’i
Understanding compliance issues helps you create a strong foundation for your nonprofit organization. With tax-exempt status comes the responsibility to be good stewards of the resources entrusted to us by the government, foundations, and individual donors.
We’ll provide an overview of the state and federal requirements you need to be aware of to maintain your status and reputation as a trusted organization but the session is intended to be interactive so we want you to share questions and concerns about ways to implement these best practices in your organization. We’ll talk story and share thoughts, options and resources with each other.

8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
