Policy Platform

Our Policy Strategy

Nonprofit New York grounds our policy strategy in the Declaration of Nonprofit Rights. Our job is to elevate the voices of our members and the nonprofit sector to advance public policy that supports the sector, and to strengthen your ability to advocate for your mission. We know that you don’t have time to follow every nonprofit-related policy in New York — so we do that for you.

We do this by:

  • Monitoring, assessing, and responding to nonprofit-related policy proposals throughout New York City and New York State.
  • Engaging with, informing, and working with government leaders, through our Government Relations Council, to create government policies that make sense for nonprofits.
  • Engaging in strategic alliances with community leaders to advance policy that supports the sector.
  • Informing our members about the policies that most impact them — and providing channels that allow them to have a say in what is happening in the sector.
