Charities Urged to Step Up Advocacy Efforts

Charities Urged to Step Up Advocacy Efforts

Printer-friendly version

The report from the National Council of Nonprofits, titled Nonprofit Impact Matters, calls on policy makers and nonprofit advocates to carefully consider the impact of government policy on charities, which are struggling to serve their constituents in an age of declining individual contributions and the threat of state and federal funding cuts for social programs.

"Common sense says that if 97 percent of nonprofits are passive, sitting quietly and politely on the sidelines, not standing for or speaking out for their missions, then nonprofits are ceding the playing field to others who will influence decisions by policy makers, potentially endangering nonprofits’ missions and the people and communities they serve," reads the report.
