OTHER LEGAL ISSUES
It is important to note that each of the sections above just touches upon major issues that should be considered when forming or representing a nonprofit corporation. The practitioner should take care to consult with local regulatory authorities, as well as practitioners experienced in this area of law to further explore the substance of these issues. There are numerous other specialized subjects that are beyond the scope of this particular section, including (but not limited to) formation and operation of other types of nonprofit entities such as membership corporations, religious corporations, trusts, civic and business leagues, co-operatives, and associations; the formation of other types of for-profit business organizations with nonprofit components, such as general partnerships, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies; intellectual property issues; employment laws; lobbying and political activity by tax-exempt organizations; funding and planned giving; tax issues; marketing and advertising; contracting with vendors and service providers; disbursement of funds (such as sending funds abroad); and publicly-supported organizations and fee-supported organizations.
