Free Nonprofit Seminar Coming to Marin County

Sacramento – On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, California State Board of Equalization (BOE) Member Fiona Ma, CPA, will host a free Seminar for Nonprofit, Faith Based, and Exempt Organizations to provide information about important state laws affecting nonprofit organizations.

Co-sponsoring this event are State Senator Mike McGuire, State Assemblymember Marc Levine, Marin County Assessor Richard N. Benson, Novato City Council Member Josh Fryday, and the California Association of Nonprofits. Local nonprofit leaders are encouraged to attend, learn, and capitalize on this unique opportunity to obtain information that can help expand and maintain their organizations.

Representatives from the BOE, Employment Development Department, Franchise Tax Board, and California Association of Nonprofits will be on hand to offer assistance regarding sales and use tax at fundraising events, navigating the nonprofit advocacy rules, funding sources and philanthropic foundations, compliance for exempt organizations, and property tax exemptions.

"Nonprofits are cornerstones for our communities and economy," said Board Member Ma. "They are critical sources of information, advocacy, and support, and they also provide steady sources of employment. I’m proud to partner on this event and connect entrepreneurs and leaders with the information they need to be successful."
