Federal Legislation & Issues

The 2016 Elections:  Impact on the Work of Charitable Nonprofits

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 nonprofits, either directly or indirectly.
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 to 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.
