As Jan announces her plans to leave her post as CEO of our organization, we want to express our deep appreciation for her extraordinary service to the thousands of nonprofits in California. When Jan assumed this role in 2012, CalNonprofits was essentially a dormant organization. Due to her leadership, today it is thriving and influential with more than 10,000 members, with recognized influence in Sacramento, in national nonprofit affairs, and in philanthropy.

We are proud that Jan has led the organization to deliver strong programming and in standing up for community nonprofits, taking bold, inevitably controversial positions. We are proud today to be an organization that is resolute in advocating for nonprofits in communities of color, in rural communities and in poor communities. We are proud to advocate to government, to institutional philanthropy, to Wall Street, and to the public.
