This one-hour webinar will offer a high-level overview of recent trends and best practices for foundation governance. Attorneys from the Nonprofit and Tax-Exempt Organizations group of Dentons, the world’s largest global law firm, will present practical tips for governance and legal compliance, focused on small to mid-size foundations. Drawing from both national trends in the industry and the impact of the pandemic and social change, topics will include:

  1. considerations for revising bylaws and conflict of interest policies;
  2. foundation political activity, including lobbying and advocacy;
  3. issues to consider when funding a project with a fiscal sponsor; and
  4. updating grant agreements.
