Nonprofits Need to Stand Together to Push for Smart Public Policies

Changes Coming for Nonprofits in a New Administration

The first 100 days of a new Administration are often marked by a flurry of activity. With one party in control of the White House, the U.S. Senate, and the House of Representatives, significant legislative and regulatory changes are a near certainty. Many of these changes will affect your nonprofit, either directly or indirectly, and some may require quick action to defend the nonprofit community and the ability to advance our missions. Our national network, the National Council of Nonprofits, just published a look at six federal issues that will likely be taken up this year and what they mean for your nonprofit. We encourage you read the article “Nonprofits Need to Stand Together to Push for Smart Public Policies,” share it with your board and other stakeholders, and be ready to stand up to defend nonprofit missions. We will keep you informed as the National Council of Nonprofits shares information on developments in our nation’s capital.
