Most not-for-profits these days no doubt use the Internet to connect with their community and distribute valuable information and resources. The unlimited access to online content provides opportunities to educate the public about the importance of your not-for-profit’s mission.
Unfettered access and content, however, comes with potential liabilities of which not-for-profits should be aware. From copyright issues to privacy and the potential for defamation, many risks are associated with your organization’s website. A not-for-profit must monitor its online presence closely. IRS agents might be looking for these liabilities and can easily “audit” your website by just browsing through it.
