Save the date for our 5th annual nonprofit board governance event at 5pm on Tuesday, September 20th! We hope you will join us online as we refresh our understanding of the basic fiduciary duties applicable to charitable Boards through the lens of practical experiences offered by a panel of nonprofit Executive Directors.

As a firm that serves the charitable sector, we feel a responsibility to provide thought leadership in the nonprofit community, engaging volunteers and staff at all levels of sophistication.  Our attorneys strive to raise the level of conversation within the tax-exempt sector through speaking engagements at conferences and educational programs, often provided without charge, as well as educational sessions for current and prospective members of nonprofit boards and committees.  The firm collaborates with the Junior League of Philadelphia and the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Regional Foundation Center to offer an annual free, educational training on nonprofit Board governance.
