When you join the board of a nonprofit organization, you take on a set of responsibilities and duties defined by law. An understanding of basic nonprofit legal concepts and rules goes a long way toward helping board members fulfill these responsibilities and duties. Legal Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards is here to help.
Do you wonder what kind of oversight and policy judgments you are expected to provide? Which organizational documents you should be familiar with? When and how you can be found personally liable? How you can avoid, or at least minimize, personal liability? This book provides a starting point for answering these and other questions.
At the end of each chapter, you’ll find discussion questions for your board. At the end of the book, you’ll find a glossary of legal terms and concepts that apply to nonprofit organizations.
