Karen Leaffer to Present on Legal Fundamentals and Advanced Topics for Scholarship Providers

Karen Leaffer will deliver two presentations at the National Scholarship Providers Association’s annual conference October 10–12, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Her first presentation – “Legal Fundamentals for Scholarship Providers” – will focus on legal basics including an overview of the legal framework within which private scholarship providers work, and will answer important legal/tax questions that apply to their scholarship programs.

In her second session – “The Heart of It: Allowing Donor Participation in the Scholarship Process” – Karen will examine the fundamentals of the current law on donor advised funds, how the law applies to the many variations of scholarships funded with public contributions, and the perils of noncompliance.
