In recent years, the subject of “good governance” and its potential to prevent wrongdoing, ensure compliance with the law, and enhance the overall effectiveness of the nonprofit sector has been a topic of enormous interest in the media, Congress, the public, and the nonprofit community. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has significantly increased its own role with respect to promoting improved governance and has announced its plans to become even more active in this area.
PYA Tax Manager Elizabeth Wright presented “Good Governance Practices for 501(c)(3) Organizations” at the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) Luncheon, Thursday, March 27, 2014. The presentation provides an overview of good governance practices to assist any size 501(c)(3) organization in complying with IRS governance guidelines.
