NCSL Foundation Overview 2017


Annual Report 2016-17


The NCSL Foundation is proud to support the outstanding work of NCSL. The NCSL Foundation for State Legislatures had a record breaking year exceeding its fundraising goal and delivering funding for critical projects at a higher level.

In FY 2017, the NCSL Foundation continued to support two core programs: The Women’s Legislative Network and the Center for Ethics in Government. In addition, the Foundation funded NCSL initiatives such as: Leaders’ Services, Web Development, Legislative Training Innovations, Member Outreach, Legislative Strengthening, Database and Research Development, Legislative Staff Management Institute, KnowWho Database, NCSL Task Forces, International Programs, E-learning, and Challenge Grants. This year’s Challenge Grants supported innovative research on a variety of topics ranging from safe water infrastructure and rural education to autonomous vehicles and marijuana. 

Thank you to all 209 NCSL Foundation sponsors who make this work possible. Together, we are committed to the work of strengthening state legislatures.
