Happy Presidents Day to those who celebrate! To test your knowledge on presidential history, match the following presidents with the respective nonprofit that he is formerly (or currently!) affiliated with. As we all know, many public servants are connected to the nonprofit sector, and Independent Sector is committed to deepening these relationships. Learn more about the Seat at the Table campaign, our effort to further enshrine the relationship between The White House and the charitable sector. The Executive Order on Strengthening the Nonprofit Sector and its Partnership with the Federal Government and forthcoming legislation give us the best opportunity we have had to make certain nonprofit expertise and experience is at the table. Permanently.
