Nonprofit New York’s Campaigns

When we come together and unite as one, our voice is amplified, our influence is magnified, and real change is possible. Get involved in our campaigns!

Support Nonprofit Advocacy
Sign onto the A Place at the Table campaign to let the City know you support nonprofit advocacy! Last month Councilmember Cabrera introduced Int. 2148, which would raise the City's "lobbying threshold” to $10,000. Nonprofits often represent the needs of our communities, but fewer than 3% of nonprofits engage in legislative advocacy. The A Place at the Table campaign seeks to reduce barriers for nonprofits to engage in legislative advocacy.
