On September 10, 2015 by Schnader

Schnader’s Nonprofit Organizations Group will host “Non-Cash Gifts: Maximizing Charitable Gain and Minimizing Risk” on Thursday, September 10, 2015, at the firm’s Philadelphia office. A panel of accomplished speakers will discuss a variety of topics in preparation for charitable giving season. Nonprofit co-chair Marla Conley will serve as moderator and discuss the tax-exempt and non­profit legal issues applicable to different non-cash gifts, including conducting appropriate due diligence, strategizing to minimize any unrelated business income tax, and negotiating contractual provisions to  protect against potential risks. She will also explore Daybreak Children’s Rare Disease Fund‘s recent collaboration and corporate spon­sorship arrangement with Ferrari as part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Ferrari’s operations in the United States.

Ms. Conley will be joined by Andrew W. Hastings, Chief Development Officer at the National Philanthropic Trust,  who will describe gifts of illiquid assets such as real estate, collectibles, and complex interests in non-publicly traded businesses and hedge funds.

Also on the panel is Josephine Burri, Vice President for Advancement at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, who will ex­plore gifts of in-kind goods and services including artwork, supplies, and capital equipment, as well as events held by a donor or sponsor on the charity’s behalf.

Andrew Stober, candidate for City Council and formerly Chief of Staff of the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, will discuss his experience with the corporate sponsorship of Philadelphia’s new bike-share program, Indego.

The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and includes cocktails and networking. Please click here to register.
