Program Description

The nonprofit and philanthropic communities played an important role in California’s minimum wage movement helping to make an increase in the minimum wage a reality. Now that we are winning the battle and California’s minimum wage is set to increase to $10 an hour on January 1 with local communities raising it even higher, what are the next steps?  How do we continue to support public policy in favor of raising the minimum wage and deal with the reality of implementation (e.g., increasing staff and program costs -- real costs)?
Join Jan Masaoka, CalNonprofits CEO, as she moderates a discussion with philanthropic and nonprofit leaders to discuss the policy, politics and reality of an increased minimum wage. 
Mark your calendars for an engaging conversation on a topic that will impact our communities in the coming months!

Program Goals

Learn about:

  • How nonprofits and philanthropy engaged in local efforts to raise the minimum wage?
  • How nonprofits are thinking about managing the rising personnel costs resulting from an increased minimum wage?
  • How the philanthropic community might respond to the rising real cost of providing program support resulting from an increased minimum wage?
