Nonprofit organizations of all kinds are being asked to do more with less and less money resulting from California’s broken tax system and budget structure. We believe that people in the nonprofit sector can be a decisive voice to increase revenue through tax and budget reform, and will be more engaged if they feel more informed and comfortable talking about the issue with others. This two hour session is led by a Nonprofits Talking Taxes trainer, and will help staff to:
-Understand what state and local taxes support in your community
-Understand why California’s tax policies and budget process is broken
-Understand how progressive tax and fee increases can be enacted to increase revenue.
In addition, people will enjoy learning this in a highly interactive session and will feel energized to discuss the issue and their opinions with others beyond the session. You will help staff to be more civically engaged when these issues appear on future ballots in the next several years.
