Frazier co-sponsors seminar for non-profit, faith-based and other tax-exempt organizations Tues., April 19

Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) is among the sponsors of a special seminar for those who operate nonprofit, faith-based and other tax-exempt organizations in Contra Costa County.  The seminar will be from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, 2016, at the Brentwood Community Center, 35 Oak Street. It will feature speakers from State Board of Equalization, the

California Employment Development Department, the Franchise Tax Board and the California Association of Nonprofits.

“I know how confusing it can be to start or step into a nonprofit organization, especially if you are a volunteer,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “My hope is that this seminar will provide useful guidance for those whose main purpose is to help other people.”

Topics to be discussed include tax rules for fundraising and events; advocacy rules for nonprofits; funding sources; philanthropic foundations; property tax exemptions, and employment taxes.

Other sponsors of the free seminar include Fiona Ma and George Runner of the State Board of Equalization; State Sen. Steven M. Glazer; the City of Brentwood; the California Association of Nonprofits; and the East Bay Community Foundation.

Drop-ins are welcome, but registration is encouraged and can be done online at
