When disasters strike new charities spring up to help the victims, and existing charities want to expand their activities to provide disaster relief. But often, these organizations donít understand the complexities of starting and operating an organization to provide disaster relief.

This webinar will explain the basic requirements for starting a tax-exempt charity and the ways new and existing organizations can properly provide disaster relief under federal tax rules, so these organizations do not risk losing their tax-exempt status.

Watch this free webinar to learn about:
  • The kinds of help organizations can provide
  • Operational and recordkeeping requirements including fundraising and working with volunteers
  • Rules for recipients of disaster relief
  • The deductibility of charitable contributions made to organizations
