Today I had the pleasure of experiencing a gathering of many CBO’s local to the central valley at AFP’s TownHall event, which in part was organized by Humanics@FresnoState. During this event, I got to meet, speak with, and listen to the CEO of CalNonprofits Jan Masaoka. She gave an interesting (educational for me) presentation on Californian nonprofit (CBO) community, from that I learned that 1 out of 16 jobs are CBO positions, that in total they bring in $40 billion dollars in revenue, and of that revenue, 63.8% comes from programs!  Another interesting topic that stood out to me was CalNonprofits goals towards addressing student debt in the CBO world, for one, I did not think to find the two associated with one another, second, I had no idea that someone with student debt could eventually be forgiven if you work within that sector for 10 yrs. Albait you do have to be paying for those past 10 yrs and other stipulations, but to know that that program does exist is great. It is amazing how much there is to learn about the sector and how little I know, and how much more I have to learn.
