A New Year: Message from the President

January 3, 2018
On behalf of the NPCC team, I'd like to wish you a happy New Year and take a moment to reflect on where we've been and where we're going.

Nonprofits were at the center of many policy and societal debates in 2017, whether we were the front page story or not. This year, nonprofits saw policy changes that deeply impact our communities - budget cuts, threats to nonprofit non-partisanship and to our ability to raise charitable donations, and reports and analyses that the sector is not doing enough to close the racial leadership gap.

NPCC entered 2017 with the goal of supporting resilience in nonprofits , addressing policy changes, and providing programs, services and benefits that our members need. Click here to read about our plans for 2018!

NPCC, Lawyers Alliance File Suit Objecting to New State Donor Disclosure Law

Release Date: March 6, 2017
On Monday March 6, 2017 Lawyers Alliance for New York and the Nonprofit Coordinating Committee (NPCC) filed a lawsuit against the New York State Attorney General’s office challenging a law that unnecessarily discourages contributions to nonprofit organizations. The Governor wants to require charitable nonprofits to disclose their donors just because they work with certain advocacy groups – even when that work has nothing to do with lobbying. Nonprofits must be transparent and accountable, but this law is a solution in search of a problem. It’s too broad, won’t encourage the transparency it seeks, and is bad for the nonprofit sector.
