16 Jul You can be a policy maker
Both Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy and the NonProfit Alliance have placed advocacy and policy in their strategic and operational plans for 2020. We’ve engaged in advocacy around COVID and CARES Act (and, of course, many nonprofits and funders have been active in speaking for affordable housing, transit, public education and more).
But – we all have a more specific and direct opportunity to be part of the policy process. Numerous public boards and commissions are taking applications for members of committees such as Accommodations Tax Advisory, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, Human Relations Commission, and the Greenville County Redevelopment Authority.
