Jeff Bird and Janet Larsen will co-present “How NOT to Run a Foundation: Lessons From the Trump Foundation Lawsuit” at the Northwest Planned Giving Roundtable Annual Conference on Thursday, September 27, from 3-4 p.m. In June, the New York state attorney general’s office filed a lawsuit against the Donald J. Trump Foundation for alleged misuse of funds for personal benefit. This session will include a discussion of what the Trumps should have known about basic corporate formalities, lack of internal controls, fiduciary obligations, self-dealing, related-party transactions and waste of charitable assets. It will also cover the role of a state’s attorney general in ensuring charitable intent. The event will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower.
