Is your nonprofit ready to accept or deny charitable contributions from
potentially controversial partners? Do you accept gifts from local wineries
or cannabis-related businesses? When does it make sense to turn down a gift?
What are the issues you should consider? It may be time to have a board
discussion around gift acceptance and to update your policy.
