Latest News for Nonprofits

fundraising stock photoWe have some great news to share about our collective policy work! A total of eight of the bills we supported are now law, including AB 488 (Irwin). This new law — several years and many stakeholder meetings in the making — provides important protections for online donors and nonprofits receiving online funds.

“This legislation impacts every single person who clicks on that ‘donate now’ button and every single nonprofit that receives funding this way,” said Jan Masaoka, CEO of CalNonprofits. “It may be low-profile but it’s most certainly high-impact and meaningful.”
