Independent Sector's Policy Proposals to Strengthen the Nonprofit Community's Ability to Serve Our Society

The Independent Sector recently issued a policy platform entitled Policy Proposals to Strengthen the Nonprofit Community's Ability to Serve our Society.

Independent Sector (IS) offers six broad policy proposals including:

  • Ensure adequate resources and fair and responsible fiscal policies to support vital programs that sustain, protect, and strengthen communities
  • Preserve and expand policies that help Americans give back to their communities
  • Ensure that nonprofits have the capacity and capital to serve the needs of their communities
  • Protect the rights of Americans to speak out through nonprofit organizations
  • Ensure that Americans are able to continue vital charitable work throughout the world without unduly jeopardizing their safety or their civil rights
  • Support funding and policies that provide for transparency and accountability to ensure integrity and public trust in charitable institutions
