Building a Federal Infrastructure for Nonprofits

Please join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, the Minnesota Council on Foundations and special guest Congresswoman Betty McCollum for a conversation about the Nonprofit Sector and Community Solutions Act on October 14 at “Building a Federal Infrastructure for Nonprofit Organizations” in St. Paul.

Despite the importance of the nonprofit sector to the U.S. economy and to the success of many policy initiatives, no federal body has responsibility for promoting or building the capacity of the nonprofit sector, or for collecting data on nonprofits. The Nonprofit Sector and Community Solutions Act (H.R. 5533) is intended to make the federal government a more productive partner with nonprofit organizations by improving communication and coordination within government and enhancing knowledge about the sector.

Minnesota nonprofits have a unique opportunity to learn about and engage with the chief author of this initiative on October 14. Join special guest Rep. Betty McCollum (4th Congressional District, MN) and a panel of nonprofit leaders to discuss the bill and provide feedback on how this opportunity can advance the interests of Minnesota and U.S. nonprofits.

Date: Thursday, October 14
Time: 1:00 p.m.– 2:30 p.m.
Location: Neighborhood House, 179 Robie Street East, Saint Paul 55107-2360
Fee: Free, but please RSVP
RSVP: Register online now and select “RSVP for Free Events, Briefings and Convenings.”
