Virtual CLE Program: Employer Sponsored Public Charities – A Valuable Recruiting and Retention Tool, Especially in the Age of COVID

1.00 Hr CLE Available

The Forum and Husch Blackwell, LLP invite you to join us for a Virtual CLE Program on Wednesday, September 1st. Employer sponsored public charities (“ESPCs”) are a valuable employee recruiting and retention tool as well as a way for founders and senior management of an employer to include their employees in their charitable giving plan on a tax advantaged basis. An ESPC is a type of 501(c)(3) public charity that an employer can sponsor with the purpose of providing disaster and other emergency relief to its employees.

If an employee is affected by a natural disaster (whether federally declared, or not), fire, flood, medical or other emergency (the COVID-19 pandemic) the ESPC can provide the employee with financial assistance. Such assistance is not taxable income to the employee when received and contributions to the ESPC will be deductible to the same extent as contributions to any other 501(c)(3).

Gold Underwriter Host:
