Getting fundraising right

NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Public Library will hold a seminar to help boards and staff of nonprofit organizations update their understanding of government regulations relating to fundraising from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Mar. 12, at the library at 133 Elm St.
Attorney Priya Morganstern, director of the Hartford Program of the Pro Bono Partnership, and Thomas M. Fiorentino, assistant Attorney General of Connecticut, will discuss:

  • Do your solicitations contain required disclosures?

  • Are the proper acknowledgements being provided to your donors?

  • If you are generating income from a business venture, do you owe taxes on this income?
