Withers partner and associate author guide for charities targeting the US fundraising market

Withers partner Kristin Konschnik and associate Jaime McLemore have authored a guide for charities targeting the US fundraising market.

The guide provides a clear and practical explanation of how charities can obtain and maintain US charitable status, with a summary of federal tax rules applicable to charities operating in the US.

The potentially significant fundraising and operational implications of qualification as a public charity of private foundation are discussed in detail. In addition, the guide clarifies the complex rules governing tax-deductible donations and addresses some of the most relevant international aspects for charities.

The guide is published by the Charity First Series.
