Nonprofits: Bridging Local Government Revenue Gaps?

The City of Pittsburgh and local municipalities continue to face significant budget shortages. As budget deficits continue, it is likely that nonprofits will continue to be viewed as a potential source of revenue dollars. In recent years, a number of proposals have been presented in which the local and regional nonprofit community are called upon to pay their “fair share,” including the most recently proposed tuition tax.

Featuring Dr. Mary Hines, President of Carlow University and Gregg Behr, Executive Director of The Grable Foundation

Join us as we discuss the following:

  • How did the higher education community effectively respond to the proposed tuition tax?
  • What additional proposals are municipalities and legislatures considering that could impact local nonprofits?
  • How can the regional nonprofit community respond?
  • What are some recommendations for large and small nonprofits in working with municipalities and legislatures?
  • Is there a perception gap between benefits provided by the nonprofit community and the public’s awareness of the same?
  • How can organizations assess their level of utilization of public services in relationship to community benefit provided?
