DuBoff, founder of DuBoff Law Group, and Bryan, a lawyer specializing in intellectual property, collaborate in this easy-to-read volume that confronts the legal complexities of nonprofits. In 18 chapters, the authors address issues such as “how to get tax free status” and “developing fundraising.” With each question, DuBoff and Bryan first give the answer in legal terms and then translate those phrases into accessible overviews for those less familiar with legal terms. Although the emphasis is primarily on issues of an organizational nature, the authors touch on thorny subjects as well, such as how to handle a difficult employee. This work does not need to be read cover to cover; one can dive into a chapter here and there, or browse for topics that may be of interest.
VERDICT For anyone involved in nonprofit work and general readers curious about legal questions.
