Free Fiscal Governance Legal Clinic for Nonprofits

NOTE: Registration is closed. Please check back for future dates.


The legal clinic will help local nonprofit organizations assess and improve their governance systems and practices, with a focus on fiscal governance and financial management.

The Judge Don Castor Community Law Center, Holland & Knight, and Exponentum™ are uniting for a National Day of Service, with the common goal of serving nonprofits throughout the country.

Issues covered will include:

  • The role of nonprofit boards in financial oversight
  • Audit committee governance
  • Internal financial controls
  • Nonprofit investment policies

About the Clinic

The legal clinic will begin with a brief training on current fiscal governance issues. Next, each participating organization will meet with attorney volunteers assigned to you who will walk you through several questions regarding your nonprofit's current policies and procedures, in order to flag areas where you may need to make changes.

After this legal clinic, your organization may request additional assistance from the Judge Don Castor Community Law Center to follow up on legal issues identified in the course of the attorney consultation.

Who Should Attend

We welcome a board member, executive director, financial officer or senior manager of your organization.

Nonprofits that serve seniors/the elderly and families will be given priority, but all local nonprofits are encouraged to register.
