Exploring Trust in Nonprofits and Philanthropy (From Independent Sector)

July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Public trust is the currency of the nonprofit sector. The public’s belief that nonprofits will “do the right thing” is necessary for the sector’s ability to fundraise, to work within communities, and to advocate for those in need. Independent Sector, in partnership with Edelman Data X Intelligence, is releasing our fifth annual report of exclusive research findings exploring the nuances of trust in American nonprofits, philanthropic organizations, and other institutions. This year’s report, Trust in Nonprofits and Philanthropy: Strengths and Challenges in a Time of Division, makes it clear that Americans still see the nonprofit sector as trustworthy in a time of division and polarization, but are less certain about trusting the sector to do nonpartisan advocacy and civic engagement.

Join Dr. Akilah Watkins, president and CEO, Independent Sector; Victor Tolomeo, vice president, Edelman Data & Intelligence; Vidya Krishnamurthy, chief communications officer and senior adviser, Hewlett Foundation; Stacy Palmer, chief executive, The Chronicle of Philanthropy; and Jim White, executive director, Nonprofit Association of Oregon, for a webinar on July 11 to discuss how the nonprofit sector is positioned to address the current issues and divisions facing American society, as well as how nonprofits can advocate around public policy while maintaining public trust.
