CalNonprofits work is driven by two principles: we support your ability to deliver on your mission, and we elevate your ability to advocate on behalf of your organization and your community.

Cutting Edge Programs

CalNonprofits keeps you on top of the latest issues affecting nonprofit leadership and staff, with programs like our Nonprofit Overhead Project, Vote with Your Mission, the Nonprofit Student Debt Project, and the California Teleconnect Fund.

Connecting the Dots

We offer research, events, and an online community to connect you with current legislative and advocacy initiatives and provide space for discussion and collaboration with peers. These programs are designed to provide background information, current thinking, and advocacy action planning on a variety of topics.

  • California Policy Forum webinar format discussions
  • Annual Convention
  • Buzz newsletter and E-News
  • Staying Compliant

    Nonprofit organizations, like any business, are subject to government regulations for maintaining their status. We partner with government agencies – like the Board of Equalization or the State Controller’s Office – to help you stay compliant as well as take full advantage of the benefits of tax-exempt status. For those with a great idea and passion for serving others we offer a “How to Start a Nonprofit” toolkit.

    Growing and Strengthening

    We support your ability to grow and strengthen your organization with:

    • Insurance and risk management services through CalNonprofits Insurance Services
    • Online job board
    • Webinars on “nuts and bolts” topics like accounting principles, unemployment insurance, technology tools and more!
    • Resource library including articles, samples, and templates for human resources, governance and financial management
    • Online professional directory of businesses serving nonprofits
    • Access to money-saving programs from a wide variety of vendors offering discounts on background checks, accounting services, flooring, office supplies, medical uniforms, and more
