In Santa Barbara County, and throughout our nation, the nonprofit sector is fundamental to the health and well-being of our families, communities, and all aspects of daily life. Nonprofit organizations mobilize resources in service of our deepest values and are called to lead when innovative solutions are needed to address the most complex challenges of our times. Despite the important role we play, nonprofits often lack the power to create the change needed for their clients or their organizational interests.
For the past year, a group of executive leaders from the nonprofit sector has worked together to create a vision for the Nonprofit Council of Santa Barbara County. Building upon past efforts with similar intentions, this group feels an urgency to activate efforts to harness the power and strength — politically and economically — of our nonprofit sector in the current moment. Imagine what could happen if critical decisions at the policymaking level included nonprofit voices, insights, and leadership. What would it look like if our voices truly impacted decision-making and policy creation?
