Read CalNonprofits Annual Report to learn what we're doing for the nonprofit ecosystem in California and our communities

We won’t sugarcoat it: 2017 was a turbulent year for many California nonprofits and the communities we work in. We’re proud to share how the California nonprofit community responded in our 2017 annual report: “Strengthening the Ecosystem for Nonprofits in California.” It's a fast, easy read: take a look here.

Read more about the issues our community mobilized and advocated on. Where did we succeed? Where did we fail? What might come back that we need to look out for? What are our opportunities in 2018?

Hundreds of you reading this participated in our work this last year -- whether signing onto a support or oppose letter, going with us to a hearing, attending a Nonprofit Town Hall, by being part of the Nonprofit Overhead Project or the Nonprofit Student Debt Project, and more. We know our collective advocacy, education, and mobilization work is improving the economic and regulatory climate for nonprofits, but we also know there’s more work to be done. As you read the Annual Report for 2017, think about what we can do better in 2018.

If your organization is a CalNonprofits member, your hard copy of the annual report is on its way to your office. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to working together with you in 2018.
