"Risks of Blurring the Line Between Charity and Business" by Victoria B. Bjorklund

Charity is under fire from those who want to “do well by doing good”, that is, taking profit out of business ventures that purport to execute “charitable missions.” Ms. Bjorklund will discuss the risks of new business structures to charity as we know it, both fundraising and regulation. This session is eligible for CFRE, CPE, and CLE credit.

Financial aid is available for Attorneys and Paralegals pursuing CLE credits. Click here for more information.
