The COVID-19 pandemic, combined with the resulting economic downturn on the heels of a pre-existing $4-6 billion NYS Medicaid deficit, will necessarily mean leaner times all around, especially for the nonprofit health and human services sector. Regardless of what happens with the November presidential elections, philanthropy will need to make important and difficult decisions as to what to support and why.

A straightforward look at budget realities—on the federal, state, and local level—is a first step for philanthropy to develop a thoughtful, practical, and needed response, both as a sector and as individual foundations. Come hear from experts from the Center for Budget Priorities and Policies in Washington, DC and the New York’s Citizens Budget Commission on the situation of government budgets currently and going forward to help inform your foundations spending decisions and directions.

  • The current and short-term future realities of government budgets
  • The issues that have contributed to these realities and the core choices ahead
  • Timely opportunities and areas to focus foundation resources
