• Michael, good analysis of a muddy situation. While we are not Tom Brady’s, even in our smaller worlds these are important issues for nonprofits. Pointing out that transactions need to be transparent, rather than “muddy” in this case, is important for nonprofits. Nonprofits also need to realize that appearances can make a huge impact on their operations through public reactions. But what would be a couple of concrete things that nonprofits could do to avoid this same situation? Have any advice?

    I’m guessing it’s a tax haven for Brady. Like the Clinton’s he may be deriving some benefit from the arrangement in terms of a tax reduction. For instance, he could give one talk a year as part of the charity and then write it off as a donation on his personal taxes.
