The Center for Non-Governmental Organization Leadership and Development (NGOLD) and the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) are co-sponsoring a presentation about how the upcoming presidential election might impact the nonprofit sector.

The free event is open to faculty, staff, students and the community. It will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30,  in the Stevens Suite of the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center (BAVC). Free parking will be available in the lot west of the BAVC.

Randy Dill, executive director of ChicagoNonProfit, is the presenter. Topics include how Republican and Democratic candidates view charitable giving, political demographics of charitable donors, how charitable giving is addressed in congressional legislation, and how the election might affect the nonprofit sector.

“We’re pleased to be offering another event in collaboration with the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership and especially pleased to be addressing the civic engagement element of the community leadership and civic engagement major.” said Nancy M. Castle, NGOLD acting director and professor. “I’ve personally heard Randy Dill speak in the past, and his sessions are always very informative and interesting. With the election coming up soon, this is the perfect time to learn more about how the outcome could influence nonprofit organizations.”

“DeKalb County is home to more than 125 active nonprofit organizations of all sizes,” said Anita Zurbrugg, DCNP coordinator and program director of the DeKalb County Community Foundation. “It’s valuable for these organizations to understand what effect the election may have on them. We’re thrilled to co-sponsor this opportunity for people to learn more about this timely topic.”
