Nonprofit Policy Briefings

Nonprofit Public Policy BriefingsNonprofit Policy Briefings bring together nonprofit leaders from around North Carolina for updates and discussions on the state of NC's nonprofit sector and the key policy issues affecting nonprofits. David Heinen, Vice President for Public Policy and Advocacy at the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits will offer an update on trends in the nonprofit sector as the COVID-19 pandemic enters its third year and information about state and federal policy issues affecting nonprofits in 2022.

We are offering regionally-focused briefings to allow you to connect and collaborate with those in your own neighborhoods about local issues, as well as topically-focused briefings so you can dive deeper into specific issues that affect your organization the most.

All Nonprofit Policy Briefings were held virtually over Zoom.
