Nonprofit Organizations Committee


The Nonprofit Organizations Committee is open to all ANA nonprofit members in good standing with a fundraising and marketing background. This Committee meets to discuss both ethics and policy matters of vital importance. The policy issues range from state solicitation law to federal tax giving incentives to postal reglations and privacy concerns. The Committee also discusses ethical issues to improve fundraising and marketing practices as they relate to proper donor and supporter stewardship and to ensure the nonprofit brand is protected through best practices and awareness of these issues. 

The ANA Nonprofit Federation, which leads this Committee, has worked to defend and advance fundraising speech and advocates on behalf of the charitable fundraising community and mission-driven organizations since the 1980s. The ANA Nonprofit Federation works with the ANA Center for Brand Purpose to advance the nonprofit community as it works ot solve societal problems at every level. 

All meetings are free for ANA client-side marketer, MSP platinum-, MSP gold-, and MSP silver-level members to attend in-person or via webinar.
