About this grant

The project goal is to advance the nonprofit sector’s policy development and advocacy capacity. The Nonprofit Quarterly, whose mission is to promote active democracy and a thriving civil society, is one of the leading publications serving the nonprofit sector in the United States. The grantee aims to build a practice of elucidating policy options and positions in a manner that addresses not only institutional perspectives but those of the communities served by nonprofits and civil society more broadly. Specific activities include: 1) investigating policy proposals affecting nonprofits and philanthropy; 2) producing traditional and new media products that inform the sector; and 3) developing and maintaining partnerships with philanthropic and nonprofit institutions and networks. The Nonprofit Quarterly was launched in late 1999 as a publication of Third Sector New England, and in 2006, it became an independent publication.
