Our Roles in State Budget Debates

The Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers
When: 
Tue, March 15, 2016,
2:00pm to 3:15pm EDT
Where: 
Webinar

Three-quarters of the states are focused on budget matters; many are facing deficits and considering spending cuts and reconsidering giving incentives. Illinois and Pennsylvania still have not finalized the budget process from last summer and several states are seeing revenue shortfalls force immediate spending cuts that affect programs performed and/or supported by nonprofits and foundations.

This policy webinar is presented by the Giving Forum in partnership with the National Council of Nonprofits, and is open to Philanthropy Northwest members. During the webinar, we will discuss state budget trends, explore why foundations and nonprofits have shown they care about this fundamental issue, and the solutions our colleagues are developing to prevent budget crises and government shutdowns in the future.

Guest Speaker: Nick Johnson, State Priorities Partnership.
Hosts: Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers and National Council of Nonprofits.
