In conjunction with the Building Stronger Neighborhoods committee, Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council is hosting a Neighborhood “Hot Topic” Training session on Nonprofit Formation on Monday, October 21. It will take place at the Corbin Senior Center (827 W Cleveland) [map] and run from 6 to 7:30pm.
This session will be of interest to neighborhood councils — including our own — who are currently pursuing or thinking about pursuing nonprofit status. Participants will hear some of the benefits and potential pitfalls of 501(c)3 status from two tax and business lawyers skilled in nonprofit formation.
Due to the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council’s historic debates over nonprofit status and the feeling that an unbiased expert opinion was necessary to make an informed decision, we specifically requested that the Corbin Senior Center serve as the site of this training session. Anyone who has or has had a stake in the EGNC becoming a nonprofit (or avoiding such a move) is therefore encouraged to attend.
Please RSVP to Jackie Caro at (509) 625-6733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
