Top Ten Policies to Strengthen the U.S.

picture-13The Aspen Institute has recently weighed in on the top ten nonprofit policies that would mobilize change and strengthen the United States. Among them, tax policies and an emphasis on service.

Three of the ten policies the organization mentions imply national service.  The Aspen Institute’s document Mobilizing Change: 10 Nonprofit Policy Proposals to Strengthen U.S. Communities promotes these policy ideas:

  • Expand recruitment and retention of a new generation of leaders for the nonprofit sector
  • Make a Summer of Service a rite of passage for every middle-schooler
  • Develop a MusicianCorps

The paper cites these programs as examples of “ideas [that] would help build overall nonprofit capacity and improve their integration with government agencies and services.”
