This conference will look broadly at the relationship between the government and nonprofit sectors and their mutual yet distinct roles in the modern economy.

The first panel will look at the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit organizations and government and how they have evolved over time.  In what areas might the private sector or government be better equipped to provide solutions for societal problems?  How do they cooperate and compete and cajole each other to do better?  The second panel will delve more deeply into just what is a charity. As the nonprofit sector has expanded over the last century, more activities, such as education and health, are performed both in the nonprofit and business sectors, often with significant government support.  This inevitably leads to many boundary questions, including the extent to which some government subsidies yield charitable output.  The third panel will relate the earlier discussions to current policy proposals such as capping the charitable deduction and examine how both federal and state/local budget constraints add pressure to this dynamic and evolving relationship between the sectors.
