It’s a tough time for nonprofits all across the United States. Years of government cost-cutting, shifting priorities and funding systems that prevent nonprofits from building long-term financial stability are pushing essential community organizations to the brink – and sometimes over it. But more and more funders are recognizing the structural difficulties nonprofits are facing and taking action.

Philanthropy New York invites Southern California Grantmakers’ members to livestream an exciting discussion between visionary foundation leaders prioritizing advocacy for grantees. In a conversation with Clark Foundation Executive Director and PNY Public Policy Committee Co-Chair Doug Bauer, the Weingart Foundation’s CEO Fred Ali will talk about the foundation’s results in LA and about the strategies that might be employed in New York to increase the sustainability of the nonprofit sector. Under Ali’s leadership, Weingart has been extraordinarily effective in advocating for policies and practices that increase nonprofit sustainability. Most recently, Ali was a crucial voice calling on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to officially extend OMB Uniform Guidance on Overhead to LA nonprofits. The discussion will explore how funders can help their grantees increase their long-term financial stability and effectiveness, along with the latest trends in nonprofit capacity building.
