Opening Main Stage – Why Democracy Depends on a Healthy Nonprofit Sector

Location: Lone Star Ballroom (2nd floor, Convention)

Main Stage

Every day we see headlines (and, increasingly, TikTok videos) describing how the fate of our democracy hangs in the balance. And, of course, those of us leading the nonprofit and philanthropic sector know we are doings things — big and small — to maintain the trust of the American public, keep our democracy strong for future generations, and ensure all people and communities are thriving. Doing all of these things requires that our sector is healthy and equitable. And that begs the question, “How healthy are we?”

In this Main Stage conversation, you’ll hear more about the latest research released in Independent Sector’s 2023 Health of the U.S. Nonprofit Sector: Annual Review. The future of our sector, our democracy, and the communities we serve relies on our shared commitment to building a healthy and equitable sector. Join a panel of national experts and thought leaders to unpack where we are, where we should be, and what we’ll need to get there.
