California’s Nonprofit Sector – Economic Engine & Public Sector Partner
Nonprofit organizations collect billions directly from taxpayers through federal, state, and local grants and contracts. Taxpayers further subsidize the nonprofit sector indirectly through tax exemptions and donor taxable income deductions. Board members oversee the financial health, strategic direction, and monitor the impact of services at these nonprofit organizations.
Latinos LEAD helps nonprofits serve as responsible stewards of taxpayer funding through transparency, accountability, and authentic inclusion.
