Our Nonprofit Sector Is At Risk. Does It Matter?

Monday, November 18, 2019 | 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Clark-Fox Forum
Hillman Hall, St. Louis, MO

Congress has slashed the budget for the IRS’s oversight of nonprofit organizations. In the wake of the cuts, Wall Street is increasingly finding ways to profit from nonprofits. What does this mean for the social sector in the United States? What can be done about it?

Robert Shireman is director of higher education excellence and senior fellow at The Century Foundation working on education policy with a focus on affordability, quality assurance and consumer protections. Register to attend. 

This event is sponsored by the Clark-Fox Policy Institute, the Social Policy Institute, and the Office of the Provost.
