In order to gain greater insights regarding how this year’s candidates for New Jersey Governor and Legislature view our state’s charitable non-profit community, its role in their policy making, and their overall vision for the state, the Center for Non-Profits conducted its first-ever candidate questionnaire. 

Candidates were invited to respond online to four questions that affect our state and the non-profit community generally.  The responses of the two gubernatorial candidates and 24 legislative candidates who submitted surveys on or before the October 18 deadline are posted at http://www.njnonprofits.org/2017_StateOfficeCandidateResponses.pdf

The Center for Non-Profits is a New Jersey non-profit corporation and a federally recognized 501(c)(3) public charity. The Center cannot and does not support or oppose candidates for office or coordinate activities with political campaigns.

We view this questionnaire as one part of a comprehensive advocacy and educational strategy to increase understanding among public officials about the non-profit community, its role in making New Jersey strong, and to foster sound public policies for the people of our state.

For more information about the candidate questionnaire or non-profit issues generally, contact Linda Czipo at the Center.
