Legal Matters for Community Foundations

From technical and practical understandings of legal rules to pressing topics of the community foundation field, Legal Matters will provide you a comprehensive and applicable understanding of how to navigate community philanthropy in the modern world.

Due to rapidly escalating health concerns relating to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Council on Foundations and the Iowa Council of Foundations have decided to cancel this Legal Matters for Community Foundations in Quad Cities, IA. This decision was made out of concern for the health and well-being of our attendees. We will work with the Quad Cities Community Foundation, the Iowa Council of Foundations, and the Alliance of Illinois Community Foundations to find an alternate date to offer the course, ideally in 2020, subject to the containment of COVID-19 and ability to travel.

Led by the Council's legal team and Brad Ward, Lead Strategist, Community Philanthropy, this workshop is designed to answer your broad legal and practical questions on administering funds, grants, and community foundation activities.
