Summer Int'l Update: Israel Restricts Nonprofit Speech; Russia Helps Nonprofit Donors

There have been a couple of international legal developments of particular significance to nonprofits this summer.

The NY Times reported that the Israeli Parliament passed legislation prohibiting public calls for a boycott against the state of Israel or its West Bank settlements, including by nonprofit organizations that would risk losing tax benefits if they violated the ban. 

And according to the Charities Aid Foundation, the Russian government approved what is essentially a tax deduction for donors to charities and other tax improvements for such ororganizations that should both enhance charitable fundraising and reduce the operating costs for Russian charities.
