New Issue of the Buzz now available online

Dear Members and Friends:
My favorite recent headline explained: “California's sea stars have mutated in small but crucial ways so that they are not going extinct after all but instead are thriving.”

As I explain in our new issue of our Buzz journal, I'm inspired.

Even small changes can help us adapt to a changing political, economic, and foundation climate. (At least I think that's the lesson!)

In this new issue of the Buzz, read how our state’s nonprofit sector is adapting during these changing times, including:
• Advocating to make state grant opportunities more accessible to California nonprofits via a state bill, AB 2252, which is moving forward with your support;
• Fighting against a problematic new “parking tax” on nonprofits;
• Joining together at California Nonprofit Day as our state legislators recognized the good work of individual nonprofits in their districts; and
• Ensuring nonprofit employees with student debt know about the PSLF program, including one of the first PSLF success stories: $170,000 in student debt forgiven!

We’ve also got updates on things like GrantAdvisor (it just turned one!), how much money CalNonprofits members are saving every year, and a great story about a nonprofit employee saving $2,500 on hearing aids through the Nonprofit Benefits Trust.
