Report on California Approach to Education and Implementation of OMB 2 CFR200

Publication date: 
07/26/2017

Among the challenges nonprofits face in providing high-quality service and producing strong outcomes to their work, managing the limited overhead allowed by most private and government grant and contracts is one of the toughest. Over the past several years, there have been efforts to explain how the “overhead myth” – that the best nonprofits operated with the least overhead – hampers service delivery, jeopardizes nonprofits’ sustainability and ultimately reduces the impact of public and private funding and to find collaborative solutions that will strengthen nonprofit organizations.

No doubt about it, these are challenging times for nonprofits. Revenues for most organizations are flat, government support for the safety net has been singled out as something we can longer afford (or are no longer willing to pay for), competition for limited resources is increasing, and demand for services continues to grow.

The Civic Engagement Primer

Publication date: 
05/05/2017

A new conversation about civic engagement is emerging. At PACE–a network of funders and foundations committed to civic engagement and democracy–we’ve seen the swell in interest and urgency around this work firsthand.  Philanthropies are continuing to understand the civic engagement field and the role they can play in its future.  We’re getting a lot of questions–things like:

  • What is civic engagement? How is it defined and what does it look?

  • How might civic engagement relate to my work?
