While all nonprofits help change lives, they also must be solvent and viable. Countess nonprofits, however, remain closely linked to policy decisions made by town, city, county, and state governments. For this reason, nonprofit survival can depend heavily on good relationships with those overseeing programs such as zoning and public planning. With this in mind, our fundraising counsel stresses effective local communication and coordination at every stage.
Some local governments expressly recognize tax-exempt nonprofits as key contributors to their community’s social and civic life. On the positive side, they understand the value nonprofits bring to the table. On the negative side, when budgets or tax bases shrink, nonprofits can face tough questions and uncertain futures.
