DANA Colored Logo

For Immediate Release:

Georgetown, DE – February marked the beginning of the Delaware Joint Finance Committee hearings on the State budget. Nonprofits are significant partners with State government in delivering services to the community. The budget proposed by former Governor Markell could have a considerable impact on the ability for nonprofits to serve their clients.

The Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement will host its Annual Budget Update and Advocacy Training with Nemours Foundation, the Delaware Office of Management & Budget (OMB), Delaware Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS), and Delaware Department of Services for Children, Youth, and Their Families (DSCYF). This is a unique opportunity for nonprofit leaders and board directors to get “hot-off-the-press” insights from the Delaware departments that do the most of the contracting with nonprofits.

Program highlights include an overall state budget update from the State departments, moderated by George Meldrum. Representative Harvey Kenton, Joint Finance Committee member will provide perspective from the JFC. Participants will also gain tips from Kim Willson and Verity Watson of Ruggerio Willson. And, with a lot of federal changes happening that could also impact future work of nonprofits, we will also hear from the offices of Senator Carper and Senator Coons.

This free event will be held February 17, 2017 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the First State Community Action Agency located at 308 N. Railroad Avenue in Georgetown, Delaware.

Registration is required; visit delawarenonprofit.org to learn more or call 302-777-5500.
