Nonprofit FORUM – OCTOBER 25, 2016 – 9 AM – 11 AM – Bear-Glasgow YMCA

 

The Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory (DEFAC) Has Forecast our Budget Gap at $167 Million and Growing.

 

This is why we need to double and triple our efforts!!!

 

“Delaware Revenue Solutions Coalition (DRSC) - An Initiative of the Nonprofit Sector” – was formed by Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement (DANA) in 2016 as we faced a daunting State Budget gap.  DANA was successful in building the coalition to include – The Ability Network of Delaware (AND), Delaware Grantmakers Association (DGA), Delaware Community Foundation (DCF), United Way of Delaware (UWDE), the Association of Fundraising Professionals – Brandywine Chapter, the Center for Community and Research of the University of Delaware (CCRS-UD), as well as our corporate, business, and government leaders.

 

The success of the DRSC saw a $2.8 Million increase to the nonprofit sector during a very challenging budgetary and election year.  Many of the other successes are less concrete, but include the convening of 150 statewide – all sector inclusive - nonprofit leaders at the forum on October 19, 2015 held in the State Trooper Barrack #2 in Bear- Glasgow.  The 2015 NP Forum panel had the Governor’s Office, the Office of Management and Business, the Chair of the Joint Finance Committee, the Delaware Business Roundtable, and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce all present to share sector news and updates on the latest budget challenges.

 

Following this, we all signed onto the NP Sector Statement – “LOGO LETTER”, testified at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Hearing in November, turned out in force at the Governor’s Budget Release, successfully had the Governor add the “Nonprofit Partner” line-item to his proposed budget, turned out in force for the “DANA Annual Budget Update”, filled the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) Hearings in February, and deluged our elected officials with the “Our Delaware” social media campaign showing the ways Delaware nonprofits change lives and build stronger communities every day, 365 days each year, year-in-year-out.  Over 150 of nonprofits turned out for “Delaware Non Profit Day” at our State Capitol’s Legislative Hall to hear from Governor Markell, Senate and House Leadership as well as DANA’s own Sheila Bravo, Ph.D.

 

Don’t miss this year’s “DRSC Nonprofit Forum and Rally” on October 25th, 2016, 9 AM to 11 AM at the Bear- Glasgow YMCA (across the street from Barrack #2 where we rallied last October).  The Nonprofit Forum and Rally has grown! As such, the YMCA has offered us their gymnasium…so register your staff, board members, and volunteers to show our strength. 

 

The 2016 DRSC Nonprofit Forum & Rally has the Governor’s Chief of Staff, Drew Fennell, OMB’s Robert Scoglietti, the JFC, and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce.   They’re all participating because they value you, your nonprofit, and the sector.  They’ve told us they want to prepare you for the FY2018 Budget Challenge that we all face and to provide you with the latest-breaking news, information, and actionable items. We hope to get some key candidates there, too.
