When it comes to public policy and advocacy, the Idaho Nonprofit Center vows to encourage and support nonprofit engagement in the public policy process at local, state and national levels; provide nonprofits effective lobbying and advocacy training and skill building opportunities; build a unified voice for the sector on matters affecting all nonprofits with which to inform and persuade decision makers; and increase respect and support for the nonprofit community among local, state and national elected officials and the Idaho public.
That being said, the Idaho Nonprofit Center’s Public Policy Committee hosted a webinar to review the Idaho Charitable Assets Protection Act with Deputy Attorney General Stephanie Guyon on October 12th.
Stephanie described the legislation and the changes that have been made as a result of public input. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions for clarification and provide further input.
The Office of the Attorney General has made a number of changes to the proposed legislation related to charitable organizations and charitable trusts that they hope legislature will support during its upcoming session.
The Idaho Charitable Assets Protection Act governs charitable organizations, as defined in the act, that hold charitable assets—property intended to benefit the general public as opposed to a specific person or group of persons. A primary goal of the act is to better define the attorney general’s authority over charitable assets. Every year, charitable organizations provide millions of dollars in services to Idahoans and assist vulnerable citizens whose needs otherwise would go unmet.
