Summary of State Charity Registration Requirements
This spreadsheet summarizes the requirements of each state for registration and reporting by charities. It is a work in progress and I offer no warranty that the information is current. I will post updated versions as I find more information. You are free to use it as a tool for managing your registrations.
Sample Conflict of Interest Policy for Land Trusts
The Land Trust Standards and Practices requires inclusion in the Conflict of Interest policy a group of people not usually included; i.e. people who are not part of the decision-making process who may have the ability to influence decisions. This group includes major donors, former employees or directors, founders and other people who may have access to confidential information. The sample COI policy here provides useful guidance for an organization contemplating an action that may benefit such people.
