Independent Sector’s mission: to advance the common good by leading, strengthening, and mobilizing the nonprofit and philanthropic community in order to fulfill their vision of a just and inclusive society and a healthy democracy of active citizens, effective institutions, and vibrant communities.

Independent Sector (IS) is the leadership network for nonprofits, foundations, and corporations committed to advancing the common good. Their nonpartisan coalition’s networks collectively represent tens of thousands of organizations and individuals locally, nationally, and globally. Since 1980, IS has sponsored ground-breaking research, fought for public policies that support a dynamic, independent sector, and created unparalleled resources so staff, boards, and volunteers can improve their organizations and better serve their communities.
