Public Policy Priorities

The Center advocates on public policy issues that affect North Carolina’s nonprofit sector and works with the North Carolina General Assembly, Congress, and federal and state agencies to develop laws and policies that save nonprofits time and money, help nonprofits operate more effectively, and preserve the public’s trust in North Carolina’s nonprofit sector. We mobilize nonprofits of many missions and budgets to be advocates on sector-wide issues.

The Center's policy staff and board members analyze and outline important policy issues each year that are approved as an agenda. The Center's 2024 Public Policy Agenda for North Carolina's Nonprofit Sector includes tax policy, nonprofit operation, government grants and contracts, and major state and federal policy issues.

The Center also supports nonprofits in their advocacy work by providing expert analysis and weekly updates of current policy issues affecting nonprofits.
