Part 1: The Linkage Between Activities and Purposes

The first part of the session with focus on how research is not intrinsically charitable but rather charitable where it furthers education as a charitable end. The same point applies to activities more generally. The law of charity requires exclusively charitable purposes but generally leaves it to charities to determine the means (or activities) through which to further those purposes. In this talk, Dr. Parachin will explore what checks and balances exist in the process of linking activities and purposes, and discuss when research (or any other activity) should fail the linkage standard. 


Adam Parachin, Associate Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School


Part 2: Charitable Research and Related Issues

The second part of this session will address the types of research carried on by charities, the ways charities fund and structure research, and the complex related concerns that charities grapple with including business and intellectual property issues.
