CCSS Working Paper #8 | Lester M. Salamon and Alan J. Abramson.
The paper explores the potential impacts of budget and program changes first introduced in the 1994 Republican “Contract With America” on America’s private nonprofit organizations. These proposed changes threaten to plunge the nonprofit sector into a serious fiscal crisis. Proposed cuts reflect the public’s misunderstanding and devaluation of the character and scale of the nonprofit sector.
