Cindy Lott Heads a Groundbreaking Report on Nonprofit Regulation in the U.S.

Cindy M. Lott, the Program Director of Nonprofit Management at Columbia's School of Professional Studies, is a leading expert in nonprofit regulation and its nuances.

In her previous position as lead counsel for The Charities Regulation and Oversight Project at Columbia Law School, she spearheaded a major report on the systematic analysis of state-level oversight and state charities regulation in the United States.

The groundbreaking report, created in partnership with the Center of Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute, has three components: a legal analysis of laws pertaining to charities in 56 U.S. jurisdictions; a survey of state and territory offices with oversight, regulatory, and enforcement authority over charities; and interviews with officials in over two-thirds of those offices.
