On Friday, March 21, Board of Equalization (BOE) Chairman Jerome E. Horton and the California Association of Nonprofits will host a free “Nonprofit Financial Conference – Building Financial Capacity for Change” to provide nonprofit organizations with information about millions of dollars in tax credits, refunds, and business loan assistance. Attendees will learn about traditional and nontraditional capital and minimizing the burden of taxation, plus have the opportunity to meet their elected representatives who make decisions that affect small businesses.

The conference will be held at El Camino College, Marsee Auditorium, 16007 Crenshaw Blvd., in Torrance. The event takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. You can register for the seminar at www.boe.ca.gov/sutax/nonprofitsched.htm or by calling (888) 847-9652.

Local nonprofit leaders are encouraged to attend, learn, and capitalize on this unique opportunity to obtain information that can help expand and maintain their organizations.

“California has the highest poverty rate in the nation. Our goal is to educate California nonprofit leaders about the millions in resources and tax credits that are available to help nonprofit organizations reduce the rate of poverty in California,” said Chairman Horton.
