First, let's remember what we talked about.

The goal of this quiz is not to test your knowledge, but rather to reinforce the most important pieces that you learned about nonprofit law. If you don't answer a question correctly, don't worry. Read the correct answer and think about why how this applies to your board.

As always, if you have questions please get in touch with us: or (855) 299-2922.

QUESTION 4: The law is complicated. The specific work of an organization determines what kinds of legal issues it might need counsel on. Considering the five buckets of nonprofit law covered in “Let’s Go Legal” – state and federal rules, fundraising, employment law, and intellectual property – on what do you think your organization needs to focus most in the next six months?

Second, watch this video

Our people really matter. We need to make sure we take care of them– and follow HR law. Download the Staffagories worksheet, then watch this video about EMPLOYMENT CATEGORIES. It shares an exercise we do in our in-person “Let’s Go Legal” trainings– something you can do at home.

Third, take Two Steps Forward

We invite you to take two steps forward from where you are now. Here are two topics to explore and bring back to your organization.

  1. Create an Ethical Culture. The board sets the tone for the culture of an organization. You have the power to create an ethical culture as a core business strategy. Watch this archived webinar as a board to learn how to do this.
  2. Create a Financial Dashboard for your organization. Rather than get overwhelmed with data, decide as a board what key indicators show your progress. Track those indicators using a dashboard.



Fourth, share what you’ve learned
