What foundation that is located outside California gives more to California nonprofits than any California-based foundation other than the aggregate DAFs at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation? Nonprofits — excluding hospitals and universities — get more of their money from which ONE of these sources than any other: Foundations? Government? Individuals? Fees-for-service? Corporations? The answers to these questions may surprise you.

The California Association of Nonprofits’ (CalNonprofits) new economic impact report answers these intriguing questions and reveals data that is vital to understanding trends that affect nonprofits in our state. This talk with focus on the report findings related to foundations, volunteerism, and disparities. Jan will also discuss what the study demonstrates about government funding, where nonprofits get their money, and other issues.

This insightful program will be of special interest to any nonprofit professional, so bring your CEO, board members, development directors, or other colleagues who would benefit from the information shared and discussed about the report.
