The California Policy Forum brings together nonprofits and philanthropy to engage with key policymakers, advocates, analysts, and one another on breaking policy issues that impact our sectors. In an online forum, listen to interviews with experts on issues such as health care reform, immigration reform, state budget debates, and insider news on nonprofit taxation and regulation.

Bringing together multiple viewpoints, sparking discussion and debate, and providing the “whole story” on complex issues, the series will help you understand critical issues that impact nonprofits and grantmakers in California and what they mean for your work.

A partnership between CalNonprofits and Philanthropy California (Northern California Grantmakers, Catalyst of San Diego & Imperial Counties, Southern California Grantmakers) and the League of California Community Foundations, the California Policy Forum not only provides a platform to bring together the voice of nonprofits and philanthropy in our state but amplifies the sector's significance and priorities to policymakers and experts.
