The philanthropic and commercial sectors are more interrelated than ever. In recent years, there has been a dramatic shift in the way that tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations leverage the strategies traditionally used by for-profits in order to advance their mission, while commercial actors have become increasingly focused on impact. This course will explore this new landscape from the perspective of the role of tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations. Through a grounding in fundamental legal issues, case studies and highly interactive exercises we will explore how these organizations can - either alone or in tandem with for-profits - navigate and apply commercial and business mechanisms and strategies to achieve and scale environmental and social impact. This course will expose students to the unique history and role of nonprofits in the US, traditional and innovative hybrid forms and structures, including nonprofit/for-profit partnerships, capital aggregation models, investment and funding issues, as well as compliance considerations.

This course will blend theory and practice and will be taught by Tomer Inbar, who is widely recognized as an expert in the law applicable to nonprofit/tax-exempt organizations.We will also benefit from the knowledge and experience of practitioners and experts in social enterprises, including Will Fitzpatrick.

Thursday, October 15th 6:25 PM - 9:05 PM
Friday, October 16th 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 3:10 PM - 5:30 PM
