Becky Seidel will present “Obtaining and Retaining Exempt Status” at the Primer on Advising Nonprofits on Thursday, May 14. The Primer is co-sponsored by the Business and Taxation Law Sections of the CBA, the Colorado Nonprofit Association, and the Colorado Society of Association Executives. Becky’s presentation will give an overview of the different categories of tax-exempt organizations, including social welfare organizations, trade associations, and social clubs, and will also focus in detail on the requirements for qualifying and operating as a Section 501(c)(3) organization. She also will discuss the differences between public charities and private foundations, and differences between Section 501(c)(3) organizations and other Section 501(c) organizations with respect to activities like lobbying. This is the third year that Becky has presented at the Primer.
