As 2012 came to a close, a partial deal was made to avoid the fiscal cliff. Federal spending cuts were delayed for two months and income tax cuts were allowed to expire for America's top 2 percent of earners. And--thanks in part to the robust advocacy from the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors nationwide--the charitable deduction was for the most part left alone.

Join the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits) and California Philanthropy for a special webinar briefing on the aftermath of the “fiscal cliff” budget negotiations and what's next for our sector. We’ll hear from experts on the roles nonprofits and philanthropy played in negotiations, the deal that was made, what was left undone and what is important for the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors in California to know moving forward.

Moderated by Colin Lacon, president and chief executive officer, Northern California Grantmakers, participants will hear multiple viewpoints and expert analysis from:

  • Ana Matosantos, director, California Department of Finance – Matosantos will discuss how the current budget deal and future cuts will impact California, including what the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors should watch for.
  • Jonathan Greenblatt, special assistant to the president and director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation (invited)– Greenblatt will provide an insider perspective on budget negotiations and discuss the charitable deduction as a possible source of revenue.
  • Tim Delaney, president and chief executive officer, National Council of Nonprofits – Delaney will discuss the roles the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors have played in budget advocacy and what the priorities are moving forward.
This webinar is produced in partnership with CalNonprofits.
