Calif. Law Aims to Make Online Giving Safer for Nonprofits and Donors

Tenenbaum Law Group’s Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum is quoted in this article in The Chronicle of Philanthropy about a newly enacted California law that, starting on January 1, 2023, will be regulating online fundraising platforms, imposing significant and multi-faceted new requirements. “Jeff Tenenbaum, a lawyer who focuses on nonprofit legal issues, says the California law will effectively set a nationwide standard for platforms that operate nationally. ‘Effectively, you have to comply with California in order to do any nationwide campaign,’ he says.” “Tenenbaum doesn’t think the law will bring fundraising platforms to a grinding halt but says it will require a change in business practices. ‘These are the kind of things that we generally recommend anyway,’ he says. ‘Now they’re going to be codified into law.’”

Jeff Tenenbaum Publishes New Quarantine Cocktails eBook

TLG’s Managing Partner Jeff Tenenbaum has published the new eBook, Quarantine Cocktails: A DC Attorney’s Inspired Libations. From the Preface: “Many have said they have found silver linings in this horrific pandemic. For me, one of them has been the rediscovery of my mixology skills. While I had been a bartender during college in Philadelphia and when I worked on Capitol Hill after that, it’s been ages since I professionally tended bar. But that has not stopped me from fashioning myself an amateur barkeep for family and friends. In mid-March 2020, I started experimenting with new cocktail creations at home – including infusions, bitters, extracts, atomizers, torches, inventive ice cubes, rare liquors, and fresh and unique ingredients, along with some fun glassware – and posting them on social media with photos and detailed descriptions. Pretty soon, my drink posts were getting more attention and feedback than anything else I posted (except maybe my cooking posts). So, I kept it going.”
