Independent Sector advocates for public policies that protect and strengthen the ability of individuals to support nonprofits and foundations and the ability of these organizations to fulfill their missions. We serve as the unified voice and source of information on the most pressing legislative, regulatory, and economic issues facing the charitable sector.
A Seat at the Table
The Seat at the Table initiative, through the proposed executive order and draft legislation, would create permanent, structural mechanisms for the sector to help shape and improve federal policy while also expanding opportunities for the government to work more effectively with the sector to achieve shared goals.
Civil Society Infrastructure
In 2020, Independent Sector and KABOOM! formed a coalition known as the Nonprofit Infrastructure Investment Advocacy Group to identify, and advocate for, the essential federal investments needed to rebuild the nation in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic crisis, and the ongoing racial injustice reckoning.
