Weaving the Threads of Public Policy and Philanthropy

Weaving the Threads of Public Policy and Philanthropy

Printer-friendly version

What was the most compelling message we heard while in D.C.? Colleague Tim Delaney, President and CEO of National Council of Nonprofits, offered a powerful case for shifting foundations’ immediate attention to the state policy landscape. Why? The numbers tell the story: since 2011 the states passed 109,000 laws while Congress passed 360. Many of these laws target the charitable sector. NonProfit Quarterly recently published Tim’s call to action entitled Foundations Can Rewrite History by Focusing on the States, a must-read about new and widespread state efforts to tax, cost shift and constrain nonprofit independence.
