NCRP recognizes the crucial role played by both self-regulation and government oversight in ensuring an accountable and responsive philanthropic sector. Government oversight entails empowering the IRS and state regulators to enforce current laws, improving current legislation so that our laws are in sync with the changing philanthropic environment, and keeping our lawmakers informed of the needs of marginalized people and communities.
NCRP has encouraged infrastructure development and effective giving for public policy and advocacy, defending the advocacy and lobbying rights of nonprofits and foundations, and educating policy makers and the philanthropic community about key policy issues affecting the charitable sector. more >
