A nonprofit’s 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status is one of its most precious assets; it: encourages giving by allowing donors to make tax-deductible donations; maximizes funds available to support the mission by exempting most income from taxes; facilitates grants from foundations and government funders; and enhances credibility with the public and donors. Make sure your nonprofit doesn’t inadvertently lose its (c)(3) status by not following the rules. This session will explain in plain English (not legalese!) some of the core responsibilities, including: filing annual IRS returns; ensuring that activities further your tax-exempt purposes and benefit the public rather than private interests; avoiding impermissible financial benefits to insiders; limiting lobbying activities; avoiding political campaign activities; limiting, and paying taxes on, unrelated business income; recordkeeping; and maintaining public charity status.

The ability to prove library value enables institutions to maximize budget dollars, properly allocate their spend, and improve user satisfaction. We have come a long way in the types and quality of data as well as methods for collecting and analyzing that information. Join our webinar to discuss how metrics have evolved to their current state and what direction we can take with new and alternative metrics in the future. Our panelists will address their methods for measuring library value from the data they choose to evaluate, to the tools they utilize, and how they perform their analysis and utilize it in real practice.
