Select a nonprofit organization that you have been or are currently involved with or one whose focus interests you.
Review the course textbook and additional reading assignments for this unit, giving special attention to the portions regarding legislative activity and nonprofit organizations.
Discuss possible actions and factors involving the New York State Legislature and New York nonprofits that likely led to the adoption of the New York Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013 such as coalition interests, enhanced desire for governmental oversight, and the like.
Select three specific areas from the Revitalization Act of 2013; one must be finance-related, one must be related to regulatory initiatives, and one can be of any area of your choosing. Discuss how they might impact the operating capacities of your selected organization.
Your paper must be a minimum of four pages in length, but no more than five pages. All pages must be double-spaced. You must include at least two additional sources besides the unit’s reading assignments. The paper must also include an introduction. If you wish to review what an introduction is and involves, you can view the tutorial “Introductions and Conclusions,” which was created by the Writing Center.

The purpose of this assignment is to gauge your understanding of the content, so focus on writing original content rather than simply regurgitating the textbook or other sources, whether by paraphrasing or using direct quotes. Paraphrasing is acceptable, but try to keep paraphrasing to a minimum. A good rule of thumb is to use 80% of your own work and paraphrase 20% or less of the work of others.
