Avi D. Kelin, Esq., Associate in the firm’s Corporate Political Activity Law practice, penned an article entitled “COVID-19 Considerations for Non-Profits Under the CARES Act and NJ Programs”, which was recently published in the Jewish Link of New Jersey.
A recent survey jointly conducted by the New Jersey Center for Nonprofits and the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers reveals that 96 percent of New Jersey charitable organizations expect moderate or significant disruptions of their operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 90 percent of respondents indicated that they already had or would soon need to cancel programs or fundraising events.
As nonprofits consider the new programs and initiatives outlined by Mr. Kelin in his article, it is also important for organizations to consider their broader legal efforts.
In the Jewish community, the mature ecosystem of schools, camps, shuls, charitable organizations and other institutions is a credit to the community and will require unparalleled support during these challenging times.
