Washington Nonprofits Public Policy Agenda for 2019

December 17, 2018

We are excited to share our 2019-2020 Public Policy Principles and Platformwith you. Our document was developed with input from our Public Policy Committee and our Board and is intended to complement the platform developed by the National Council of Nonprofits. The document we developed will guide our work during the upcoming legislative session.

As the state’s nonprofit association, we make sure that nonprofits have what they need to succeed. In terms of our 2019-20 legislative agenda that means building an environment that supports the nonprofits that support our communities. We plan to operationalize this agenda through a framework with three elements: protect, promote, and advance.

Based on those principles, we have developed an agenda that breaks down into five planks:

  1. Tax Policy: Empowering Community Solutions through Nonprofits
  2. Budget, Spending, and the Economy: Addressing Community Needs
  3. Partnering for a Successful 2020 Census
  4. Public Accountability: Ensuring Public Trust
  5. Promoting Civic Engagement

We look forward to kicking off our 2019 public policy work with our first Public Policy Advisory Call on January 10, 2019. Click here to register for the call.

We hope that you will join with us in 2019 to advocate for the issues that matter to our state’s nonprofit sector. Make sure you are subscribed to our Public Policy and Advocacy Updates email list so that you receive important messages from us about key policy developments.
