for general operating support
The National Council of Nonprofits is a trusted resource and proven advocate for America’s charitable nonprofits. Connecting the policy dots across all levels and branches of governments, the Council of Nonprofits keeps nonprofits informed and empowered to create a positive public policy environment that best supports nonprofits in advancing their missions. Working with and through the nation’s largest network of nonprofits—with 25,000-plus organizational members—the organization identifies emerging trends, shares proven practices, and promotes solutions that benefit charitable nonprofits and the communities they serve.
for support of the acquisition of CLPI and strengthening nonprofit sector advocacy infrastructure
The National Council of Nonprofits works to protect and strengthen nonprofits in the United States. As a part of that work, the Council seeks to protect nonprofits’ legal rights to engage in advocacy and provide training and resources for nonprofits. Recently, the organization acquired the assets of the Center for Lobbying in the Public Interest. The Center was one of several organizations, including the Council, Independent Sector, and the Alliance for Justice, working on nonprofit advocacy. There were simply too many players given the limited operating capital. The National Council’s acquisition of the Center for Lobbying in the Public Interest consolidates these fragmented efforts, creating efficiencies and improving effectiveness.
