2022 Symposium Logo


CA Deputy Attorney General Elizabeth Kim

If you’re thinking uncertain times call for caution or inaction, stop! Despite a well-documented drop in donations, predictions of a recession, and a chaotic new election cycle on the horizon, nonprofits across the state are making great strides in effecting meaningful change in their communities.

Join us for our annual Policy Symposium for an inspiring look at some of the most creative advocacy efforts we’ve come across, as well as a dive into our own mult-year campaign to improve the way the state contracts with its nonprofit partners. We’ve got nonprofit leaders, government representatives who understand and champion nonprofits, and other expert panelists who will discuss innovative and actionable strategies you can use in building a more resilient and equitable future. What’s more, we’ll officially welcome CalNonprofits’ new CEO, offer our farewell to Jan Masaoka, and hear a keynote from the Elizabeth Kim, new head of the Charitable Trusts Section at the California Department of Justice.
