Warlows Legal in collaboration with Loggica Chartered Accountants presented a free seminar and workshop for not-for-profit and charitable organisations in Melbourne on 27 November 2014.
The event, held at Warlows Legal’s Melbourne offices, was well-attended by representatives of Jewish charitable organisations from a range cultural, religious, educational and welfare groups.
The seminar included a fully catered networking lunch, followed by interactive presentations that addressed the legal, practical and financial obligations facing the Not-for-Profit sector.
Peter Hersh, auditing director of Loggica Chartered Accountants, presented a detailed analysis of the changing and complex financial landscape of accounting and taxation regulations that are applicable to the sector.
The workshop also featured presentations by Harriet Warlow-Shill, co-founder of Warlows Legal and Nadav Prawer, Lawyer and University Lecturer, who addressed the myriad of legal issues charitable organisations must navigate.
With proper planning, protocols and pro-active measures, organisations can ensure that they are well placed to deliver best practice across all aspects of their services.
The workshop concluded with an outline by grant consultant Chana Graj-Fraenkel on strategies that charitable organisations should employ in order to increase success when applying for funding and grants from local, state, and federal governments, as well as private philanthropic trusts and foundations.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Not-for-Profit workshop. We hope you found the session useful and are looking forward to holding a similar event in Sydney in December 2014.
