Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC to Present at Florida's Planet Philanthropy 2013

Posted By LeeAnn Yesse, Law Firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, Friday, May 31, 2013

The law firm of Kahn, Swick & Foti, LLC will continue its BP Nonprofit Claims educational speaking tour as a sponsor and exhibitor at Florida's Planet Philanthropy Fundraising Conference to be held in Sarasota, FL. Planet Philanthropy is the annual statewide conference presented by the Association of Fundraising Professionals Florida Caucus. The 2013 event will be June 9-11, 2013 at the Ritz Carlton® in Sarasota, FL.

The AFP Florida Caucus is a coalition of 18 AFP Florida Chapters and the Puerto Rico Chapter. The AFP Florida Caucus is dedicated to advancing philanthropy by enabling people and organizations to practice ethical and effective fundraising through education, training, mentoring, research, credentialing and advocacy; and under an informal joint relationship, convene as a group to conduct statewide business of interest to the chapters as well as sponsor and conduct Planet Philanthropy.

Lewis Kahn, attorney and managing partner at KSF, a LANO member based in Madisonville, LA will be presenting to over 400 members of the Florida nonprofit community. The BP Nonprofit Claims speaking tour is a continuing education series of seminars intended to inform businesses and nonprofits of their ability to participate in the $8 Billion BP Oil Spill Settlement.

The next event in the series will be at the American Fundraising Professionals Greater New Orleans Chapter Fundraising Conference. The conference will take place June 13 - 14 at Holy Cross School in New Orleans, LA. For more information, please follow the link below.

Filing a BP Claim or at least taking action to determine if your organization has such a claim is an important fiduciary duty that executives and board members owe to their organization. If you have any questions or comments concerning the BP Nonprofit Settlement Claims process, please do not hesitate to call Lewis Kahn at 504-455-1400 or vial email to Lewis.Kahn@ksfcounsel.com.

 

PLEASE NOTE: As a LANO corporate member, but also as a member of the nonprofit community at large, we feel that it is our duty to alert nonprofits throughout the Gulf South of their ability to participate in this historic BP settlement. No matter what law firm you may choose to represent you, any reputable lawyer will not charge your organization to evaluate your claim. The burden of assembling the documents necessary to review your organization's claim is generally minimal.

Consultant Volunteering 40 Hours in February

Posted By L L Gibbs Consulting, Wednesday, February 1, 2012

LANO has been such a wonderful resource for me, and I wanted to do something to let them know how much I appreciate them. I thought about buying a small token gift and dropping it off, but then I had a better idea...

I remembered the movie "Pay It Forward.” If you haven’t seen it, go find and watch it. It’s a great story! Anyway, I decided that I would pass the favors along and "pay it forward."

I would like to donate 40 hours in February to LANO nonprofit member organizations. I have a background in Development with successful grants, fundraising events, and appeals. If you could use a little help this month, please let me know.

Many thanks to the staff at LANO!
