Community Foundation Invites Local Nonprofits To Special Forum

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md - The community foundation hosted a special forum providing information about budget process.

The event was open to all nonprofit organizations and gives out detailed information on how the budget process impacts funding and grant programs at the local level.

"The surprising thing for a lot of us is that in many state and local government programs, grant programs that are helping non-profit organizations; many of those are funded by federal dollars. Even if your organization doesn't receive federal grants directly, a lot of those state programs are being funded that way and as those are cut, the organizations that receive those funds directly are impacted. But as they try to fill those gaps, through additional private contribution, it has sort of this trickle down effect on other organizations that may not even be receiving federal dollars themselves," says Erica Joseph, Vice President of Community Investment of The Community Foundation.

The event also gave advice on how organizations can prepare for current and expected funding cuts.

"Organizations have to have a plan but ultimately, if these cuts continue month and month. We're gonna see services reduced. We really need people to get in touch with their members of congress and say "don't cut services for kids, elderly people, vulnerable populations" we need that funding to continue," says Neil Bergsman, Director of Maryland Budget & Tax Policy Institution.
