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 evolving landscape from the perspective of the role of tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations. Through a grounding in fundamental legal issues, case studies and 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 in a legally compliant manner. This course will expose students to the unique history and role of nonprofits in the US, traditional and innovative corporate forms and structures, 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 hybrid structures.

We also have special academic rules for these condensed courses:
-Students must attend each course session and cannot attend any course session remotely (even for illness or emergency situations).
-The Registrar’s Office will drop a student who does not attend each course session.

Due to the condensed nature of this course, in-person attendance at all course sessions is mandatory. Absences cannot be excused for any reason, including illness or emergencies. The Registrar’s Office will drop any student who misses a session.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
