Compliance Assessment

With our nonprofit compliance assessments, Cowan Consulting for Nonprofits can help your nonprofit reduce future risk and legal problems by evaluating its operations with a particular emphasis on common pitfalls. The extent of the assessment depends entirely on the goals and needs of your nonprofit.

After an initial assessment to identify areas of concern, we work with you to develop a plan to address any deficiencies and lay a foundation to ensure legal compliance in the future. Areas that we can evaluate include:

  • Corporate documents,
  • Board performance,
  • Compliance with tax exempt requirements,
  • Fundraising laws and practices
  • Employment procedures
  • Volunteer management
  • Communication policies
  • Political activities and lobbying
  • Use of Intellectual Property
  • Websites.
