How to keep any nonprofit out of trouble, running smoothly, andaccomplishing its mission "Jack Siegel--lawyer, accountant, management consultant, andcomputer whiz--takes the putative director or officer of anonprofit organization on a useful and often entertaining voyagethroughout the realm of the tax-exempt organizations universe,pointing out its quirks, foibles, and legal liabilities along theway. His handbook will make mandatory--and arresting--reading forthose who are already serving as trustees, directors, officers, andkey employees of exempt organizations, particularly charitableones. Siegel's goal, in which he succeeds, is to help directors andofficers of nonprofit organizations 'make better decisions.' Thebook is full of large policy analyses and paragraphs on thedetails, such as board size, board committees, board meetingformats, the contents of minutes, and the duties of officers. Salted with some excellent real-life examples, what also sets thisbook apart from most in its genre is the tone: the writing style,the brusqueness, the bluntness. He complains that too manydirectors 'check their good judgment at the boardroom door.' Headvises individuals who 'desire agreement and demand adulation' tostay off boards; he insists on 'commitment' and 'institutionaltension' with the executive director. He warns prospectivedirectors that some organizations want, in addition to time andjudgment, 'either your money or your ability to raise money.' To mydelight, he extols the virtues of 'some level of expenditures' forqualified lawyers and accountants. Please join me in adding this most helpful handbook to yournonprofit library." --Bruce R.

Governing Nonprofit Organizations

Federal and State Law and Regulation

Author: Marion R. Fremont-Smith

Publisher: Harvard University Press

ISBN: 9780674037298

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 570

View: 2548

The nonprofit sector is a vital component of our society and is allowed the greatest freedom to operate. The public understandably assumes that since nonprofit organizations are established to do good, the people who run nonprofits are altruistic, and the laws governing nonprofits have reflected this assumption. But as Marion Fremont-Smith argues, the rules that govern how nonprofits operate are inadequate, and the regulatory mechanisms designed to enforce the rules need improvement. Despite repeated instances of negligent management, self-interest at the expense of the charity, and outright fraud, nonprofits continue to receive minimal government regulation. In this time of increased demand for corporate accountability, the need to strengthen regulation of nonprofits is obvious. Fremont-Smith addresses this need from a historical, legal, and organizational perspective. She combines summaries and analysis of the substantive legal rules governing the behavior of charitable officers, directors, and trustees with descriptions of the federal and state regulatory schemes designed to enforce these rules. Her unique and exhaustive historical survey of the law of nonprofit organizations provides a foundation for her analysis of the effectiveness of current law and proposals for its improvement.
