CalNonprofits Articles

At the end of California’s legislative session, CalNonprofits racked up an impressive list of wins. Our legislative agenda this year reflected the range of values that nonprofits embrace, as we worked on bills to build the sustainability of our nonprofit ecosystem and support the communities we serve. 

We championed SB 3, AB 2251, and SB 1234 -- bills that strengthen our workforce, by providing more just wages, helping young people struggling with student debt and workers facing the economic uncertainties of retirement.

We advocated for broader opportunities for civic engagement by expanding voting access and making it easier to vote, with AB 2466 and SB 450. 

We fought for AB 1348, a bill to help nonprofits learn about and compete for federal funding opportunities, and we fought against AB 2855 -- the “warning label” bill that would have mandated excessive and unnecessary reporting requirements for nonprofits. 

And we launched the first California Nonprofits Day to celebrate the importance of nonprofit organizations to the economy and well-being of California, marked by the passage of ACR 192. 

As you know, it was not CalNonprofits alone that secured these wins. They could not have happened without the hundreds of nonprofits that signed official policy letters, educated their constituents and communicated with their elected officials.
