Nonprofit Basics: Best Practices for Approving Insider Compensation Decisions
Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. This episode is the third in a series discussing insider transactions by exempt organizations. In this episode, I'll look closely at best practices for approving insider compensation decisions made by public charities and private foundations.
In episode 32, I gave a general overview of the federal laws regulating the transaction of business between a tax-exempt organization and its insiders. Insiders include directors, trustees, certain executives, substantial contributors, entities controlled by directors or substantial contributors, and their family members.
In episode 33, I took a deeper dive into conflict of interest policies and considerations in deciding which insiders need to comply with the organization's annual conflict of interest disclosure procedures.
