Happy New Year!

Happy New Year nonprofit champions and scholars!  It's time for the obligatory predictions-about-new-year post:  What legal and policy issues will be among the hottest in the new year?  image from 321happynewyear.com With the caveat that I'm particularly bad at predicting the future (me, 2006: "texting will never catch on"), I'll throw out a few USA-specific possibilities:

  • Changing government funding environment, with potential for sharp decreases in both federal and state funding of health and social services
  • Even more diminished role for IRS in charity oversight, shifting power to state attorneys general
  • Additional attempts by to withhold government funding from nonprofits based on ideological disagreements (e.g., Planned Parenthood, anti-BDS laws)
  • Debate over the extent of funding houses of worship and religious programming (e.g., the upcoming Trinity Lutheran case in the Supreme Court)
  • Increased state disclosure mandates for politically active nonprofits (e.g., New York)

What else?  What do you think will be the biggest issues facing the nonprofit sector this year?
