Legal Ins and Outs of Nonprofit Fundraising
Gala dinners, walk-a-thons, auctions, internet campaigns, raffles and other fundraising strategies raise funds and increase awareness and excitement for your organization's work.  They are also helpful to recognize existing donors and reach additional supporters.  Hosting a special event or running a fundraising campaign  requires time, energy and planning, as well as careful consideration of relevant legal issues.
