Nonprofit Administrators & Development Professionals
Professionals in nonprofit and development roles often have a dual charge: provide service and support to the organizationís constituents while driving fundraising efforts to build financial stability for the organization over the long term. Development professionals and nonprofit administrators benefit from a deeper understanding of the administrative and tax issues that impact their organizations and affect their constituents. Whether learning ways the law aids in managing the organization more effectively, or studying the underlying tax and estate laws that assist in building customized giving plans for donors, a deeper understanding of law assists nonprofit and development professionals in achieving both goals.
