In the “new normal” of severely constrained state and local budgets, the mounting problems of nonprofit organizations often seem to be overlooked. As Tim Delaney of the National Council of Nonprofits put it recently on The Nonprofit Quarterly website, nonprofits are suffering from the withholding of payments by government for services already rendered; from a wave of proposed new taxes and fees; and from the expectation that the nonprofit sector will somehow fill the void as public funding is slashed. All the while, Delaney argues, nonprofits continue to labor under the delusion that they cannot legally speak out about their plight.
How bad are things getting for nonprofits and what can they do about it? The Bradley Center was pleased to host an outstanding panel of knowledgeable commentators, including Tim Delaney and the Urban Institute's Eugene Steuerle, along with Ivye Allen of the Foundation for the Mid South and Steven Malanga of the Manhattan Institute. Bradley Center Director William Schambra moderated the discussion.
