S4E2: When Discretionary Spending is Essential

In this episode, Ben and Kristina anticipate springtime in Washington, DC, which means advocates from across the country are in town to meet with their members of Congress, and discuss updates related to unrelated business income tax, charitable giving, and government spending. Ben Corb, director of public affairs at the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and co-chair of NDD United, joins as a guest to discuss what nonprofits should know about nondefense discretionary (NDD) funding efforts, how decisions on federal spending affect the mission of nonprofits across the country, and how they can get involved.
