Contracts Do’s and Don’ts

Nonprofits commonly enter into agreements with sponsors, vendors, and even fellow nonprofits. Most of the time everything goes off without a hitch. However, do you know how to protect your nonprofit in the event that something doesn't go as planned?


During this workshop, our speakers will help nonprofits understand:

•     Why have a formal written agreement?

•     What should be included in a contract?

•     How can a contract be terminated?

•     What is an indemnification clause?

•     How can nonprofits establish a contracting process?
