Liz Darling, OneStar Foundation
Recently, there have been a variety of efforts to improve the collaboration between government and the nonprofit sector, often with the support of grantmakers. For example, a new law makes Texas’ OneStar Foundation chair of an interagency coordinating group of 24 state agencies to reduce barriers to effective contracting with nonprofits, work across agencies to create more consistent funding applications, implement joint agency monitoring and shared reporting, partner with nonprofit networks to increase service delivery and to better understand the full cost of doing business in the nonprofit sector. Speakers include a perspective from state government, a successful state-wide public-private partnership, a thought leader on the role that overhead and capacity-building play in advancing outcomes and a social entrepreneur who brings nonprofits, philanthropy, government and business together to create social impact. Come learn more about the ways grantmakers can help bring government and nonprofits together around common goals.
