Independent Sector COO Victor Reinoso was honored on September 22 at Building a Better D.C. for All, DC Appleseed’s annual award reception.
Today, Independent Sector released polling research that shows that Americans are overwhelmingly united in support of the charitable sector. We are thrilled, though not surprised, by results of this important work.
What our research has found is that individuals like you and organizations like yours are trusted and valued by American voters on both ends of the political spectrum. Not just that, the report shows that voters encourage and expect the government to collaborate with our sector to solve problems, advocate for our sector’s participation in the policy process, and support policies that enhance charitable giving.
