Withers produces the beginner's guide to US charity rules


Withers’ partner Kristin Konschnik and associate Jaime McLemore have authored a guide for charities targeting the valuable US fund-raising 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 or private foundation are discussed in detail. In addition, the guide clarifies the complex rules governing tax deductable donations and addresses some of the most relevant international aspects for charities.

The guide is published by The Charity First Series, which is building a wide-ranging library of essential handbooks for not-for-profit organisations.
