by Helen Palomino

Today we had the privilege to attend to the "CalNonProfits Policy Convention" this event was organized whit the purpose to enlighten the California non profit sector about the findings of the economic impact study conducted by the University of San Diego regarding the economic impact the nonprofit sector has on California's economy. The findings were stunning and are available online at

Some of the sessions that we attended included: An Agenda with Philanthropy: Funding Marginalized Communities and Nonprofit Messaging: What We Say Matters. 

The keynote address was delivered by Judy Belk, President and CEO, of The California Wellness Foundation. 

The final session's topic was titled, "Benefit Corporations, L3Cs, and Social Enterprise: Good or Bad for the Nonprofit Sector?" 

The entire program was relevant, informational, and stimulating and will help Cancer Research Center of the Desert move forward with our projects in meeting our mission to provide educational, emotional, financial, and other support to cancer patients and families through their cancer journey.
