The Economic Power of California’s Nonprofits

Join us for a special presentation by Jan Masaoka, CEO of CalNonprofits, to learn about the latest annual report on California nonprofits "Causes Count: the Economic Impact of California's Nonprofit Sector - New Findings!" 

Hear directly from Jan about the scope and impact of government-nonprofit partnerships, what's changed since CalNonprofits released the first Causes Count in 2014, and how the new data can be used to advocate for ourselves and our communities. We don't always think of the California nonprofit sector as a powerful economic force, but we generate 15% of the state's GDP and employ more people than the construction industry.

Jan will present the findings from this new economic impact study of California's nonprofit sector, including:

  • First-ever look into government-nonprofit interdependencies
  • Disparities within the nonprofit sector and how they’ve grown and changed since 2014
  • How business models differ within the nonprofit sector
  • Q&A
  • And more!

She'll also speak to the implications of the findings for philanthropy, government, and nonprofits, and discuss CalNonprofits policy initiatives based on this work. This is a discussion and briefing, not just a presentation.

The registration fee includes a print copy of the 72-page full color report.
