Let’s Go Legal

Let’s Go Legal is here to help you achieve your mission and stay compliant in the process. This virtual workshop will get you started on a road to compliance by thinking of your nonprofit like a car. Just like a car, you need to register your nonprofit and know how to operate the organization. There are state and federal rules of the road to follow. Your nonprofit needs money and resources (fuel) to power the organization. The people in your car matter too, these are your nonprofit’s valuable workers. Lastly, similar to cars, every organization has a unique look and feel as well as special materials that you may want to protect. The session will also cover bylaws and how to use them to strengthen your board practices as well as advocacy and ways to grow your mission within the public sector.

The virtual workshop will cover:

  1. State Law
  2. Federal Law
  3. Fundraising
  4. Employment Law
  5. Intellectual Property Law

Let’s Go Legal is Part 3 of the Nonprofit Fundamentals Series. Register for the series to strengthen your board’s performance and decision-making.

Aero Methow Rescue Service

GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.

My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. He told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.
