Governance Webinar Series – Session 2 – What You Should Know: Executive Compensation and Tax Exemption

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

Boards of tax-exempt organizations have a duty to the organization and the public to safeguard charitable assets and ensure funds are used for appropriate purposes. The Internal Revenue Service requires that “reasonable compensation” be paid to executives. The failure to appropriately set and determine executive compensation can cause intermediate sanctions and additional taxes being assessed on the organization’s directors, managers and those who received the compensation. Public outcry also can harm the organization’s ability to meet the needs of the community. Learn best practices in developing and setting executive compensation so Internal Revenue Service requirements are satisfied to better protect the organization and ensure charitable purposes continue to be fulfilled

Learning objectives:

  • Identify how to ensure executive compensation policies and procedures are consistent with best practices.
  • Understand the board’s role and responsibility in setting executive compensation.
